Fayette County Woman Sentenced to Federal Prison for Her Role in Drug Trafficking Conspiracy

FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. – A Fayette County woman was sentenced yesterday to federal prison on drug charges, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Tiffany D. Ramsey, 27, of Boomer, Fayette County, previously entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine, a quantity of heroin, and a quantity of oxycodone.  Ramsey was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Stuart commended the cooperative investigative efforts of several agencies, led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force. The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Beckley Police Department, the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Department, the West Virginia State Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the United States Postal Inspection Service also provided assistance throughout the investigation.

“Yet another person in this Fayette County network of drug dealers is going to prison,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “Anyone that would peddle such poisons – meth, pills, heroin, fentanyl – deserves federal time and our accommodations don’t come with turn down services, a chocolate on the pillow or a Michelin rating.”

Ramsey previously admitted that between May 2017 and June 28, 2017, she took part in a drug trafficking conspiracy with multiple participants. During this time period, Ramsey admitted to working with Cheyenne Fragale and others to distribute methamphetamine, heroin, and oxycodone in and around Fayette County. Ramsey admitted that she and Cheyenne Fragale sold the controlled substances from their house near Boomer. Ramsey also admitted that on June 28, 2017, law enforcement officers executed search warrants at various locations related to this drug trafficking conspiracy. During the searches, officers seized over 300 grams of crystal methamphetamine, as well as heroin, fentanyl, and over $29,000 in cash. The methamphetamine was later analyzed and confirmed to be 94% pure. The drug trafficking organization was responsible for distributing oxycodone, methamphetamine, and heroin in and around Fayette County.
