SIOUX CITY -- A Storm Lake, Iowa, man was sentenced Tuesday to more than six years in federal prison for selling methamphetamine.
Bounpane Phaymany, 34, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Sioux City to 78 months in prison. He pleaded guilty in February to one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.
Phaymany and Dylan Gustafson were arrested in July after Storm Lake police executed a search warrant at a home in the 1100 block of West Fifth Street in Storm Lake and found 1.2 pounds of meth with a street value of about $19,000, a semiautomatic handgun and $400 in cash.
Gustafson arrived during the search, and police found him in possession of $8,500 in cash, two ounces of marijuana and a loaded 9mm handgun.
Gustafson, 25, of Aurelia, Iowa, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 25.
