Man sentenced for moving 99.8 percent pure meth

Drug charge added for jail conduct

MADISON, Wis. - An Almond man was sentenced to 10 and one half years in prison for moving meth and having drugs sent to him in jail.

Prosecutors said Eric Zastrow, 33, was stopped in Utah in November and four pounds of methamphetamine was found in his trunk. He told investigators he bought the meth in Las Vegas and was taking it to Wausau to sell. The meth was 99.8 percent pure, according to prosecutors.

While in jail on that charge he arranged for his girlfriend, Jennifer Schoenfeldt, to mail him an opioid, suboxone strips, in the jail, according to prosecutors.

Zastrow was sentenced to 10 years on the meth charge and another 6 months on the suboxone charge. He pleaded guilty to the charges in April.

Schoenfeldt, 32, of Wausau, pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge for her role in sending Zastrow the suboxone strips. She's scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 12.
