Midland Woman Charged with Conspiracy and Possession of Ammunition

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Midland, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance and Possession of Ammunition by a Prohibited Person.

Angelica Dolloff, age 30, was indicted on June 12, 2018.  She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 19, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in federal prison and/or a $10,250,000 fine, up to life of supervised release, and up to $200 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on or about June 1, 2013, and continuing through June 12, 2018, Dolloff knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed with others to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.  The Indictment also alleges that Dolloff, who is an unlawful user of, and addicted to a controlled substance, knowingly received and possessed ammunition, which had been shipped and transported in interstate commerce and foreign commerce.  

The charges are merely accusations and Dolloff is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

Drug trafficking is an inherently violent activity.  Firearms are tools of the trade for drug dealers.  It is common to find drug traffickers armed with guns in order to protect their illegal drug product and cash, and enforce their illegal operations.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.   Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

The investigation is being conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.   

Dolloff was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
