DAVENPORT, Iowa — On Thursday, November 12, 2020, United States District Court Chief Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced Allen Julian Fields Jr., age 33, of Burlington, to 121 months in prison for Possession with Intent to Manufacture or Distribute 50 Grams or More of Methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. Following his prison term, Fields was ordered to serve four years of supervised release as well as pay $100 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.
In October of 2019, law enforcement officers attempted to stop Fields’ vehicle, and Fields drove away at a high rate of speed - in excess of 50 miles per hour on city streets. Fields wove in and out of traffic and drove directly at officers. Fields’ vehicle was eventually disabled and Fields and a passenger ran away. After both individuals were caught, officers located a bag containing 446.4 grams of methamphetamine. A search warrant was executed on Fields’ cell phone, which revealed text messages consistent with drug trafficking.
This matter was investigated by the Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task Force (SEINT); Burlington Police Department; Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office; Henry County Sheriff’s Office; West Burlington Police Department; Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement; Iowa Division of Criminal Investigations; and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
