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

Faith Martin, 20, of Shinnston, pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine.  Martin admitted to selling methamphetamine in Harrison County in August 2018, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Martin 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 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.
