Spencer Woman Sentenced On Federal Meth Charge

Wed 9-9-2020

(Spencer)-- A Spencer woman is headed to federal prison after pleading guilty back in March of this year to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

33-year-old Shana Mull was sentenced last week to more than six years in federal prison.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says evidence at plea and sentencing hearings showed that between June 2019 through August 2019 Mull and others conspired to distribute more than 10 pounds of methamphetamine in the Iowa Great Lakes Area. According to the information, Mull was responsible for distributing smaller quantities of the drug. She further admitted during the hearings that she assisted a larger methamphetamine dealer in acquiring 10 pounds of meth and one pound of cocaine.

Court documents also state that in late August of 2019 on two separate occasions Mull attempted to elude law enforcement, causing substantial property damage while erratically driving a motor vehicle at excessive speeds. The documents also say Mull allegedly associated with others who possessed firearms while the conspiracy was going on.

Mull was ultimately captured in Okoboji in a storage unit where she and her boyfriend were temporarily living.

The case was investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement along with the Okoboji, Milford and Spencer Police Departments and the Iowa DCI.
