Roanoke Woman Sentenced on Heroin Charge

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA – United States Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr. announced today the sentenced of a Roanoke woman who previously pled guilty to a federal drug charge.  

Camilla Bridget Ward, 25, of Roanoke, Va., previously pled guilty United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia in Roanoke to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin. Today in District Court, Ward was sentenced to 35 months in federal prison.  

“The use of heroin has destroyed communities throughout the Western District of Virginia,” United States Attorney John P. Fishwick said today. “We will work with our law enforcement partners to continue to be vigilant in doing what we can to take those who distribute this substance off the streets and provide support to those seeking help for their addiction.”

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Roanoke City Police Department and officials with the Baltimore/Washington HIDTA. Assistant United States Attorney Andrew Bassford prosecuted the case for the United States.
