Michigan man admits to drug distribution

ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA – Michael Christopher Morgan, of Detroit, Michigan, has admitted to his role in a heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine distribution operation in Randolph County, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Morgan, also known as “Deon” and “D,” age 36, pled guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Distribute Heroin, Cocaine Base, and Methamphetamine.” Morgan admitted to working with others to distribute heroin, “crack” cocaine, and methamphetamine in Randolph County from March 2016 to March 2017.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen D. Warner is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Mountain Region Drug and Violent Crime Task Force investigated.

The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF).

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
