Burlington Man Sentenced to 240 Months Imprisonment for Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute and Possession of a Firearm
DAVENPORT, Iowa– On December 20, 2018, Carlos Jermane Walls, age 37, of Burlington, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger to 240 months in prison for Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Distribute and 120 months in prison for Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum.
Walls was ordered to serve five years of supervised release following the 240 months of imprisonment, three years of supervised release following the 120 months of imprisonment, and pay $200 to the Crime Victims’ Fund. The two periods of imprisonment and supervised release will run concurrently.
On July 5, 2018, Walls pleaded guilty to the offenses and admitted on May 2, 2017, he possessed 2567.77 grams of actual methamphetamine and a .38 special revolver inside a residence in the 800 block of Iowa Street in Burlington.
He further admitted at the time he possessed the methamphetamine, he intended to distribute some or all of it to others. The charges were the result of an investigation that began with a citizen tip to law enforcement.
The investigation culminated in the execution of a search warrant at the residence where law enforcement recovered methamphetamine, the revolver, and other items consistent with drug distribution.
This matter was investigated by the Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task Force, Burlington Police Department, Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Des Moines County Tactical Response Unit.
The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
