Friday, December 7, 2012

Rodney Brock, 42, and David Specketer, 45, both from Storm Lake, have been charged with one count of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. The charges are contained in an Indictment filed November 28, in federal court in Sioux City.

The Indictment alleges that, from about July 2011 through October 2012, Brock and Specketer conspired with each other and others to manufacture and distribute 50 grams or more of actual (pure) meth, that they possessed and aided and abetted another or others in the possession of pseudoephedrine.

If convicted on the conspiracy charge, each face a minimum sentence of 10 years, to a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $10,000,000 fine, and five years up to life of supervised release following any imprisonment. On the pseudoephedrine possession charge, each face up to 20 years' imprisonment and $250,000 fine. Brock and Specketer were both released on bond awaiting trial in February.
