WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Dalton Kade Riggs, of Cameron, West Virginia, was indicted today on a methamphetamine charge, Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Bernard announced.

Riggs, 33, was indicted on one count of “Distribution of Methamphetamine.” Riggs is accused of selling methamphetamine in Marshall County in March 2021.

Riggs faces up to 20 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Clayton J. Reid is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Marshall County Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

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