Two Harrison County men have admitted to their roles in a methamphetamine distribution operation.

Jesse Pack, 24, and David Weaver, 34, both of Clarksburg, admitted to their involvement in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Pack pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm.  Pack, an unlawful user of a firearm, admitted to having a .9mm pistol in Harrison County in June 2018, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Weaver pleaded guilty to distribution of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a protected location.  Weaver admitted to selling methamphetamine near Washington Irving Middle School in Harrison County in October 2017, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Pack faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.  Weaver faces not less than one year and up to 40 years in prison and a fine of up to $2 million.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Greater Harrison Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

The investigation was funded in part by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program.  The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
