CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Kelly Wright-Meyers, of West Union, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 34 months incarceration for distributing methamphetamine, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.
Wright-Meyers, age 36, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Methamphetamine” in April 2019. Wright-Meyers admitted to selling methamphetamine in December 2017 in Harrison County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Greater Harrison Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. The United States Marshal Service assisted in the arrests.

The investigation was funded in part by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF).
