Webster City man sentenced in meth case

Wildt to serve 11 years in federal prison

WEBSTER CITY — A Webster City man has been sentenced to federal prison after he admitted to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

Ty Wildt, 30, was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison Monday, according to prosecutors.

He had previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in federal court.

The United States attorney’s office, Northern District of Iowa, stated that evidence presented at the plea and sentencing hearings showed Wildt was involved in a conspiracy that distributed more than 150 grams of pure meth.

Wildt’s involvement lasted from April through September 2018.

“On three occasions in August 2018, Wildt distributed more than 24 grams of pure methamphetamine to individuals cooperating with law enforcement,” the U.S. attorney’s office stated.

Additionally, Wildt was previously convicted of two felony drug offenses in Iowa in 2016.

At the conclusion of Wildt’s 11-year sentence, he must serve five years of supervised release.

He is being held in the custody of the United States Marshal until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Wright County Sheriff’s Department, Webster City Police Department, and Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
