Berkeley County woman admits to drug charges

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Destiny Lee Dabbs, of Martinsburg, West Virginia, has admitted to drug charges, Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Bernard announced.

Dabbs, 29, pleaded guilty today to one count of “Conspiracy to Distribute Fentanyl and Heroin and Cocaine Base” and one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and to Distribute Heroin, Fentanyl, Cocaine Base, and Cocaine Hydrochloride.”  Dabbs admitted to working with others to distribute fentanyl, heroin, cocaine base, and cocaine hydrochloride from August 2020 to June 2021 in Berkeley County and elsewhere. The combined drug weight was between 40 and 60 kilograms.

Dabbs faces up to 20 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000 for each count. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lara Omps-Botteicher and Timothy D. Helman are prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Eastern Panhandle Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Trumble presided.
