Columbus Man Sentenced for Huntington Drug Trafficking
In August of 2013, Walker’s vehicle was stopped by the Ohio Highway Patrol. During the traffic stop, police found approximately 300 grams of heroin and 498 oxycodone pills inside the car. Walker told police that he was en route to Huntington to deliver the drugs to an associate.
The Huntington Violent Crimes and Drug Task Force conducted the investigation. 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.
