Delaware County Man Sentenced for Methamphetamine and Firearms Charges

AUG 04 (CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa) – DEA, Special Agent in Charge James P. Shroba announced today that a man who imported pseudoephedrine from Canada to Iowa in order to manufacture methamphetamine was sentenced on August 3, 2015, to more than 12 years in federal prison.

Roger Hettinger, age 42, from Manchester, Iowa, received the prison term after pleading guilty on May 19, 2015, to importation of pseudoephedrine, possession of illegal silencers and possession of pseudoephedrine with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

Hettinger admitted he, along with others, obtained pseudoephedrine from local sources and from Canada to use in manufacturing methamphetamine at his residence and elsewhere.  Searches of Hettinger’s Manchester home in January 2015, by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, revealed a methamphetamine manufacturing operation, 19 firearms and four homemade silencers. 

United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade sentenced Hettinger to 150 months’ imprisonment, a special assessment of $300 was imposed, and he must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. 
           
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Patrick J. Reinert and investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Linn County Sheriff's Office; the Cedar Rapids Police Department; the Marion Police Department; the Iowa City Police Department; and the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
