On June 29, Barbour County sheriff’s deputies pulled Dadisman over on his motorcycle and found meth and a revolver in a side saddle on his bike. That led deputies to the camper where Dadisman lived. There, officers found more meth, drug sales paraphernalia and more guns, according to court documents.

Dadisman faces at least 10 years and up to life in federal prison and a fine of up to $10,000,000.

The Mountain Region Drug Task Force and the Barbour County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case against Dadisman.

Dadisman remains in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
