Moundsville, WV man convicted of methamphetamine trafficking

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Nicholas S. Dubrowski, 27, an oil and gas worker living in Moundsville, West Virginia, was convicted of methamphetamine trafficking, 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 received shipments of crystal methamphetamine from a source in the southwestern United States. He would then redistribute to fellow oil and gas industry workers in Marshall County, West Virginia.

Dubrowski, also known as “Country,” pled guilty to 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.  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 prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick P. Stamp presided.
