Methamphetamine Conspirator Sentenced

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA – A Cana, Virginia woman, who conspired with others to distribute methamphetamine, was sentenced today in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia in Roanoke, United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. announced.

Lindsay Elease Berrier, 23, of Cana, Virginia, who previously pled guilty to one count of conspiring to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine, was sentenced today to 84 months in federal prison. Two co-conspirators, Rebel Akers and Sharon Gallimore have been convicted and are awaiting sentencing.

“Methamphetamine continues to devastate communities across Virginia and destroy lives,” United States Attorney Fishwick said today. “We will continue to work with law enforcement at all levels to dismantle distribution conspiracies, both large and small, to make our communities safer.”

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and the Surry County, North Carolina Sheriff’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Andrew Bassford prosecuted the case for the United States.
