MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – A Toledo, Ohio man was arraigned today after being indicted on May 16 by a federal grand jury on charges of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine distribution, Acting United States Attorney Betsy Steinfeld Jividen announced.

Michael Austin Boyd, Jr., age 35, was indicted on one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin,” one count of “Possession with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine Base,” one count of “Possession with the Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine,” and one count of “Possession of Firearm in Furtherance of Drug Trafficking Crime.” Boyd allegedly possessed with the intent to distribute heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as a .38-caliber revolver, in Harrison County in September 2016.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Traci M. Cook is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Greater Harrison County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, and Bridgeport Police Department are investigating.

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