Harrison County woman admits to role in methamphetamine distribution


A Harrison County woman has admitted to her role in a methamphetamine distribution operation.

Stormetta Hawkins, 26, of Clarksburg, pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine.  Hawkins admitted to selling methamphetamine in July 2018 in Harrison County, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Hawkins faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

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, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
