Harrison County woman admits to oxycodone distribution

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Brittany Brown, of Stonewood, West Virginia, has admitted to a drug distribution charge, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Brown, age 32, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Oxycodone.” Brown admitted to selling oxycodone in Harrison County in January 2016.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Mon Metro Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

The investigation was funded 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. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
