Harrison County men face methamphetamine charges

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Jeremiah R. Dodrill, of Spelter, West Virginia, and Jacob Renard White, of Clarksburg, West Virginia appeared today before a federal magistrate judge to face charges involving methamphetamine distribution, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Dodrill, age 36, and White, age 30, were indicted on May 1, 2018 by a federal grand jury sitting in Clarksburg. Dodrill and White were each indicted on one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and Distribute Methamphetamine,” and two counts of “Distribution of Methamphetamine.” Dodrill is facing an additional count of “Distribution of Methamphetamine.”

Dodrill and White are accused of selling methamphetamine in February of 2017 in Harrison County. Dodrill is also accused of selling methamphetamine in March 2017 in Harrison County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew R. Cogar is prosecuting the cases on behalf of the government. The Greater Harrison Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
