Monongalia County woman sentenced for her role in an oxycodone distribution operation

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Ariel Blosser, of Morgantown, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 24 months incarceration for distributing oxycodone, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Blosser, age 28, pled guilty to “Distribution of Oxycodone” in November 2017. Blosser admitted to selling oxycodone in February 2016 in Monongalia County. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Mon Metro 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.

Senior U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
