A man has been sentenced after conspiring to sell cocaine base in Davenport for more than a year.

In September of 2011, 26-year-old Keevin Hanes conspired with others to sell cocaine base in Davenport, according to U.S. Attorney, Nicholas Klinefeldt.

Officials say Hanes bought cocaine and then converted it into cocaine base to sell. While officers were investigating the case, they searched Hanes’ Davenport home twice and found cocaine base, cocaine, a digital scale, packaging material, drug paraphernalia, and a significant amount of money.

He was sentenced on Thursday, July 25, 2013 to 13 years and five months in prison for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute 280 grams or more of cocaine base, according to the U.S. Attorney. Following his imprisonment, Hanes will serve five years of supervised release. He will also pay $100 to the Crime Victims Fund.
