WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Zachary Price, of Flushing, Ohio, has admitted to drug distribution, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Price, age 23, pled guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and Distribute Cocaine, MDMA, LSD, Marijuana, Oxycodone, Adderall, Codeine, and Alprazolam.” Price admitted to distributing cocaine, MDMA, LSD, Marijuana, Oxycodone, Adderall, Codeine, and Alprazolam from April 2017 to November 2017 in Ohio County.

Price faces up to 20 years 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 Stephen L. Vogrin is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Ohio County Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

The investigation was funded 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.

U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. Mazzone presided.
