Panzi pleads guilty to meth charges
SIOUX CITY - A Fort Dodge man has admitted his role in federal court in a drug conspiracy.
Chad Panzi, 31, of Fort Dodge, pleaded guilty in Sioux City on Thursday to conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine.
Panzi told the court that he was involved in a conspiracy from 2009 until November 2011 that produced at least 50 grams of pure meth. Between January and November 2011, Panzi was able to get 45.12 grams of pseudeoephedrine that he used to manufacture meth, according to a press release from the United States attorney's office, Northern District of Iowa.
Panzi had been convicted on drug charges twice before his plea Thursday; he was convicted of possession of a precursor with intent to manufacture methamphetamine in Humboldt County in 2008, and he was convicted in Webster County of manufacturing methamphetamine in 2004.
