A Monongalia County man admitted in federal court to methamphetamine distribution.

Khareem Sampson, 30, of Morgantown, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.  Sampson admitted to distributing methamphetamine in July 2018 in Monongalia County, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Sampson 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 in the arrests.

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.
