Heroin & Pill Dealer Sentenced in Huntington
In April of 2013, members of the Huntington Violent Crime and Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 416 30th Street in Huntington, a place Golson shared with Cory Lynn McCourt. During the search, agents found 10.9 grams of heroin. Golson admitted that the heroin belonged to him and he planned to sell it. Golson told agents that from January of 2010, to April of 2013, he received regular deliveries of heroin and oxycodone pills from Detroit that he sold in Huntington. Golson also reported that he sold crack cocaine during this same period.
Agents also found and seized multiple handguns and rounds of ammunition during the April search. Golson admitted that he used the weapons for his protection during drug deals.Assistant Greg McVey handled the prosecution. This case is being 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. 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 in communities across the Southern District.
