Prior to the operation, Allison Fox, 41, of Morristown, Tennessee, “had used her cell phone” to call an “information source” to “arrange the sale of one gram of heroin” for the sum of $200-300, officers said.

Fox also messaged the information source to state that “her [Fox’s] supplier had the requested amount and would bring the heroin into” West Virginia from Tennessee, according to the complaint.

As a result of the bust, officers seized 0.6 grams of heroin, as well as 1.5 grams of methamphetamine in Fox’s vehicle, officers said.

Fox has been charged with conspiracy of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver heroin and carrying a controlled substance across state lines. She is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $90,000 bond.
