HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - A Huntington man who possessed and sold oxycodone was sentenced today to three years and one month in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Booth Goodwin. Tracey Lee Gibson, 36, previously pleaded guilty in August 2015 in federal court in Huntington, West Virginia, to possession with intent to distribute oxycodone.

On March 26, 2013, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a search warrant at Gibson’s residence at 1608 Madison Avenue in Huntington. During the search, agents recovered 43 oxycodone pills that Gibson intended to sell. Agents also seized over $10,000 in cash proceeds from Gibson’s drug deals. Prior to the search, Gibson was also involved as a supplier in the sale of oxycodone to a confidential informant on three occasions. 

The Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution.

This case was prosecuted as 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 opiate painkillers and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
