Charleston, WV - Wood County Woman Pleads Guilty to Drug Trafficking Offense

A Wood County woman pled guilty to a drug trafficking offense. Brooke Alexandria Kimble, 21, of Parkersburg, pled guilty to distribution of fentanyl.

“Fentanyl is so powerful. So deadly. And this dealer’s deeds led to death,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “Too many West Virginians have died as a result of fentanyl overdoses. Drug dealers must be held accountable. The peddlers of death must end the chaos and destruction they deliver to our people.”

Kimble admitted that on January 7 and 8, 2019 she distributed what she believed to be heroin to a police informant. Laboratory analysis later determined the substance was fentanyl. She further admitted that on January 5, 2019 she distributed what she believed to be heroin to Frederick Lawson who died later that day of fentanyl overdose. The transactions all occurred at her residence on Avery Street in Parkersburg.

Under the plea agreement, Kimble faces 10 to 15 years in prison when sentenced on January 23, 2020.

The Parkersburg Police Department and the Parkersburg Narcotics and Violent Crimes Task Force conducted the investigation. United States District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin presided over the hearing.
