Iowa man sentenced in guns for drugs scheme

SIOUX CITY (AP)--A Lakeside man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to trying to trade guns for drugs.

Nineteen-year-old Jesse Kraft was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Sioux City. He pleaded guilty in June 2008 to possessing stolen firearms, manufacturing and possession a sawed-off shotgun and possessing firearms while being an unlawful user of marijuana and methamphetamine.

According to court records, Kraft and a juvenile stole 11 guns from several locations in Buena Vista County. Records show they sawed off a shotgun and then arranged to trade the gun and three others for drugs to a drug dealer in Omaha, Neb.
