SIOUX FALLS | Three people have been charged in the biggest methamphetamine bust in Sioux Falls.

The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/Zih6p6) that 42-year-olds Regina Renee Johnson and Robert Raymond Jackson and 28-year-old Jeffrey Harley Strom were indicted by a federal grand jury last week. The three have been charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance after authorities seized nearly 9 pounds of methamphetamine and more than $90,000 in cash.

A federal charge of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance carries a mandatory minimum sentenced of 10 years in prison.
