HUNTINGTON — Breyanna Wilkerson, of Beckley, pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute heroin, according to a news release from United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Wilkerson faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced May 10.

“Wilkerson was caught in Huntington with 91 grams of heroin and fentanyl,” Stuart said. “There is no doubt that by seizing these dangerous controlled substances, the excellent work of law enforcement prevented a number of overdoses.”

Wilkerson admitted that on May 2, 2019, officers searched her hotel room at the Days Inn on Route 60 in Huntington. Wilkerson told the officers everything in the room belonged to her. Officers found 91 grams of heroin and fentanyl in the nightstand.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Violent Crime and Drug Task Force West conducted the investigation. United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie Taylor is handling the prosecution.
