Beckley man sentenced for distribution of heroin

BECKLEY, W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that another Beckley man was sentenced in federal court for distribution of heroin.  Ronald Greer, 60, was sentenced by United States District Judge Irene C. Berger to a 16-month term of imprisonment, followed by a three-year term of supervised release.  Greer previously pled guilty in November of 2014, admitting that he sold heroin to a person who was cooperating with law enforcement authorities.  The drug deal took place on Adrian Court in Beckley.

This case was investigated by the Beckley/Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

This case is part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs and heroin.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of pills and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
