CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Two Harrison County residents are facing methamphetamine charges after a grand jury in Clarksburg indicted them on November 3, 2020, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.
Larry Thomas Gregory, II, 43, and Angela Nicole Chapman, 33, both of Shinnston, West Virginia, are each charged with one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with the Intent to Distribute and Distribute 500 grams or more of Methamphetamine,” one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute 500 grams or more of Methamphetamine ,” one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute 50 grams or more of Methamphetamine,” and one count of “Maintaining a Drug-Involved Premises.”
The two are accused of working together to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine from September 2019 to February 2020, sometimes from their residence on Morris Street in Shinnston, in Harrison County.
Gregory and Chapman each face at least 10 years and up to life incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000,000 for each of the 500 grams or more of methamphetamine charges. Gregory and Chapman face not less than five and up to 40 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $5,000,000 for the 50 grams of methamphetamine charge. They each also face up to 20 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000 drug premises charge. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon S. Flower is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Greater Harrison Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative; the U.S. Postal Inspection Service; and the Shinnston Police Department investigated.
An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
