DAVENPORT, Iowa-A Davenport postal worker who let drug dealers store
large amounts of cocaine and marijuana in his home has been sentenced
to six years in prison. Roger Dengler pleaded guilty last year to
maintaining a drug house in a case that dates to 2006, when
investigators seized 80 pounds of marijuana from a hotel room.

Police say they learned that Dengler, a 36-year employee of the U.S.
Postal Service, allowed his home to be used to store cocaine and
marijuana. Prosecutors say a big-time dealer shipped marijuana from
Denver to Davenport hidden in tires, which Dengler would then weigh,
repackage and distribute to customers in the area.

In all, prosecutors say he stored up to 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.

U.S. District Judge James Gritzner sentenced Dengler Thursday.
