Huntington Man Pleads Guilty on Gun, Heroin Charges
On September 24, 2013, Smith used two firearms to shoot six people in the Northcott Court neighborhood of Huntington. Smith was a convicted felon and could not legally possess any firearms, having been previously convicted in 2001 of robbery in Ohio. He was also convicted in 2010 in Cabell County, West Virginia, of unlawful wounding and attempt to commit a felony. Additionally, Smith pleaded guilty today to selling heroin in Huntington on February 6, 2013.
Smith fled the state after the September 2013 shooting and was eventually located and arrested in New York by the FBI.
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 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. The investigation was conducted by the Huntington Violent Crime/Drug Task Force, Huntington Police Department, DEA and the FBI. SAUSA Sharon M. Frazier is handling the prosecution.
