HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A Detroit, Michigan man was sentenced to 12 months in prison and three years of supervised release for his role in a federal drug conspiracy, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Tevin Robinson, 26, previously admitted that in April 2017 he came to Huntington with the intent to distribute oxycodone and Xanax.  Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in which Robinson was a passenger on Interstate 64. Officers located more than 200 oxycodone pills and 53 Xanax pills. 

“Far too many Detroit drug dealers have flooded Huntington and Charleston with opioids and other addictive and dangerous drugs.  I have been laser focused on holding out of state drug peddlers accountable for the harm they have caused in our communities.” United States Attorney Mike Stuart said.

The investigation was conducted by the Violent Crime and Drug Task Force West.  

United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers imposed the sentence.  Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie S. Taylor handled the prosecution.
