Harrison County man sentenced for role in a methamphetamine distribution operation

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA –Cody Boley, of Wallace, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 51 months incarceration for his involvement in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Boley, age 25, pled guilty to one count of “Unlawful Possession of a Firearm” in April 2019. Boley, being a person prohibited from possessing a firearm, admitted to having a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol in May 2018 in Lewis 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 investigation was funded in part by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.

U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Kleeh presided.
