(Sioux City)-- A Sioux City man has pled guilty to meth charges in U.S. District Court. 

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says 31-year-old Christian Javier Ramirez entered the plea today (Tues.) to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. 

Ramirez admitted during his plea hearing to conspiring with others to distribute methamphetamine from early January 2020 to on or about January 30th, 2020. 

A criminal complaint says about seven pounds of methamphetamine was intercepted in Colorado by the Colorado State Patrol. Authorities say the drug was destined for Storm Lake.

Ramirez is being held in the custody of a U.S. Marshal prior to sentencing which is pending completion of a pre-sentence report.
