Man Pleads Guilty for Heroin Distribution from Jefferson Avenue Apartment in 2013
On December 30, 2013, Keaton sold heroin to a confidential informant in the 1400 block of Jefferson Avenue in West Huntington. After the sale, Keaton entered Apartment #2 at 1416 Jefferson Avenue. The following day, December 31, 2013, officers with the Huntington Police Department searched the apartment where they found and seized more than 400 grams of heroin and $12,349 in cash. Keaton was arrested on January 26, 2014, and admitted to officers that he had been engaged in a conspiracy to distribute heroin from the West Huntington apartment for over six months.
Keaton faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced on July 14, 2014.
The Huntington Police Department Special Emphasis Unit conducted the investigation with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams is in charge of 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 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.
