Ohio woman sentenced for role in drug conspiracy

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Marisa Page, of Columbus, Ohio, was sentenced to three years of probation for her role in a drug conspiracy that spanned several states, Acting U.S. Attorney Randolph J. Bernard announced.

Page, 29, pled guilty in October 2020 to one count of “Conspiracy to Distribute and to Possess with the Intent to Distribute Controlled Substances.” Page admitted to working with others to traffic methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin in Wetzel County, Ohio, Georgia, as well as into the southern district of West Virginia.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn M. Adkins prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the West Virginia State Police, the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, and the New Martinsville Police Department investigated.

This effort is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation.
