Stankus pleaded guilty in February 2019 to one count of aiding and abetting the possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Stankus admitted to working with another person to distribute methamphetamine in December 2017 in Upshur County.

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.
