Huntington Woman Sentenced for Federal Drug Crime
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A Huntington woman caught with drugs in 2015 was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Kaley Elizabeth Bowen, 29, previously pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine base and marijuana.
“In these times, we encourage and support businesses as they do all they can to survive, but not this type of business. Ms. Bowen’s business was dealing drugs out of her apartment- heroin, cocaine base and marijuana. Fortunately, this business is ‘Closed’ and the drugs never hit the street,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.
Bowen admitted that on November 21, 2015, Huntington police officers came to her residence located at 1441 7th Avenue, Apartment 5, in response to a reported domestic dispute. When officers arrived, they found Bowen in the residence and observed multiple items consistent with drug distribution. Officers secured a search warrant for Bowen’s residence and during the search, officers seized approximately 300 grams of heroin, 27 grams of cocaine base, and 155 grams of marijuana. Bowen admitted that she intended to sell the drugs.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Huntington Police Department conducted the investigation. United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers imposed the sentence. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution.
