14 indicted on federal heroin distribution charges
Fourteen people from area counties and Baltimore have been indicted in federal court in Harrisonburg for heroin distribution in the northern Shenandoah Valley, the Front Royal Police Department announced in a news release on Friday.
The indictments are part of an ongoing investigation with the Northwest Regional Drug Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Agency that has been conducted for more than three years. The investigation showed that the Baltimore area was the source of heroin for users and other sellers, and several overdoses have been linked to the distribution conspiracy, the release states.
The following have been indicted: Sheldon Berry, 27, of Baltimore; Antwan Wilson Cottman, 28, of Baltimore; Adrian Darnell Edwards, 23, of Front Royal; Da’Shawn Lee Edwards, 22, of Front Royal; Earl Magwood, 41, of Front Royal; Alisha Marie Stocking, 20, of Toms Brook, Megan Marie McNall, 23, of Front Royal; Nicole Renea McNall, 24, of Front Royal; Antwan Deshawn Lucas, 21, of Baltimore; Marcus Rae Henderson, 34, of Baltimore; Randall Wayne Freeman, 39, of Front Royal; Brittani Monique O’Bannion, 22, of Front Royal; Keon Rasheed Hackley, 19, of Front Royal; and Tiara Lachay Bailey, 23, of Front Royal.
All have been indicted in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia in Harrisonburg on 30 counts of charges relating to heroin distribution. Additional indictments are pending.
Authorities are not releasing any other details at this time, as it is still an ongoing investigation.
