Michigan woman admits to role in drug distribution in Monongalia County


A Detroit, Michigan woman has admitted to her role in a drug distribution operation.

Geronda Wilson, 43, pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting the maintaining of drug-involved premises.  Wilson admitted to maintaining a home in Morgantown for the purpose of distributing heroin, oxycodone and crack cocaine from May 2017 to May 2018, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Wilson faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Mon Metro 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.
