Moundsville, WV man charged with methamphetamine trafficking

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – A federal grand jury returned an indictment today charging Nicholas S. Dubrowski, 27, of Moundsville, West Virginia, with distributing methamphetamine in Marshall County, West Virginia in January and February 2015, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

An investigation by the Marshall County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, revealed that Dubrowski both manufactured and received shipments of methamphetamine for redistribution and sale.

Dubrowski, also known as "Country," is charged with one count of "Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine," and one count of "Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine." He faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1,000,000.00 on each of the two counts. 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 Sarah Montoro is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government.

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