A Harrison County man has admitted to a methamphetamine charge in federal court.

William Koch, 34, of Anmoore, has admitted to methamphetamine distribution, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Koch pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine.  Koch admitted to selling methamphetamine in August 2018 in Harrison County, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Koch faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.

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

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.
