Storm Lake Man Sentenced to up to 20 Years in Prison for Delivery of Meth

A Storm Lake man was sentenced on Monday of this week in Buena Vista County District Court to serve a total of up to 20 years in prison on drug-related charges.

Back in November, 39-year-old Chak Takeo pleaded guilty to two counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine, a class C felony. He was sentenced to serve up to ten years on each count with the Iowa Department of Corrections. The terms will run consecutively. The remaining charges were dismissed per terms of the plea agreement with the BV County Attorney’s Office.

According to a criminal complaint, Takeo illegally distributed nearly 60 grams of methamphetamine from November of 2021 through February of last year. Takeo was wanted on a BV County warrant charging him with several violations pertaining to an investigation into illegal drug sales. Takeo and another individual were arrested on February 27th of last year after Storm Lake Police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for an equipment violation. Quantities of marijuana and methamphetamine, as well as additional drug equipment were discovered in the vehicle.
