WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Robert Michael Junkins, of Clarksburg, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 300 months of incarceration for drug and firearms charges, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

In June 2019, a jury deliberated for less than one hour before finding Junkins, age 51, guilty of two counts of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine,” one count of “Possession of a Firearm During and in Relation to a Drug Offense,” and two counts of “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.” 

Junkins had methamphetamine in his possession on three separate occasions. Having been convicted of a felony drug offense, Junkins also illegally had several firearms and ammunition. The crimes occurred in August and September 2017 and November 2018 in Harrison County.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brandon S. Flower and Stephen D. Warner prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Elkins Police Department investigated. 

U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey presided.
