Virginia man indicted for heroin and cocaine distribution

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Wilbur Reid, Jr., of Roanoke, Virginia, was indicted today by a federal grand jury for allegedly possessing heroin and cocaine, Acting United States Attorney Betsy Steinfeld Jividen, announced.

Reid, age 42, was indicted on one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine Hydrochloride” and one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin.” Reid is accused of committing the crimes in September 2016 in Berkeley County.

Reid faces up to forty years and a $5,000,000 fine for the first count and up to twenty years and a $1,000,000 fine for the second count. 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 defendants.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Z. Krasinski is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Eastern Panhandle Drug & Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

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