CHARLESTON - Two defendants pleaded guilty to drug charges out of Greenbrier County.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Amanda Nicole Canaday, 26, of White Sulphur Springs pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin, admitting that she possessed 56 packets of heroin in her apartment on August 31, 2013 that she intended to sell.

She faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine when she is sentenced October 30.

Joshua Daniel Osborne, 31, of Lima, Ohio pleaded guilty to traveling in interstate commerce to facilitate an unlawful activity, according to Goodwin. Osborne reportedly admitted that on September 1, 2013, he drove from Alderson to Columbus, Ohio, obtained a quantity of heroin and returned it to Alderson, where he placed the heroin into capsules, intending to sell them.

He further admitted that he had done this to sell heroin on other occasions, according to Goodwin. Osborne faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 upon his sentencing on October 30.
