CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Angela Nicole Chapman, age 35, of Shinnston, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 72 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Chapman and her boyfriend, Larry Gregory, distributed methamphetamine from their residence in Shinnston, West Virginia, for several months in the summer and fall of 2020.  Law enforcement executed search warrants at their residence on two occasions.  During the first search, agents recovered almost two pounds of methamphetamine, two firearms, and $17,205.  In the second incident, the U.S Postal Inspector found a suspicious package mailed from Los Angeles, California, to Chapman’s home. Agents then conducted a controlled delivery of the package. Chapman retrieved the package from her front porch and took it into the home.  Agents searched the residence and recovered the package, which contained an additional pound of methamphetamine and $1,300. 

Co-defendant Gregory was sentenced to 235 months in federal prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Flower prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

The Greater Harrison Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative; the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; and the Shinnston Police Department investigated.

Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Kleeh presided.
