United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced this week that four Greenbrier County residents have been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with heroin trafficking. Those indicted and subsequently arrested are: Tiffany Rose Arbogast, 24, of Lewisburg, charged with four counts of heroin distribution; Christopher Miller, 32, of Alderson, charged with two counts of heroin distribution; Joshua Osborne, 30, also of Alderson, charged with two counts of heroin distribution and one count of possession of heroin with intent to distribute; and Amanda Nicole Canaday, 26, of White Sulphur Springs, charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin.
Miller and Canaday have been remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service pending trial. Osborne and Arbogast face hearings this week to determine whether they will remain in Marshals Service custody.
These cases were investigated by the Greenbrier County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney John File is handling the prosecutions.
Goodwin’s office is prosecuting these cases to fight heroin trafficking in Greenbrier County and as part of an ongoing battle against the illegal sale of prescription drugs and heroin throughout the Southern District of West Virginia. The United States Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illicit pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers and heroin.
Note: The charges contained in the indictments are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
