Florida Woman Sentenced for Role in Marshall County Pill Ring

Posted: Updated:

A Florida resident will spend more than three years behind bars for her role in a West Virginia pill ring.

Authorities say 32-year-old Dana Deem was sentenced after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

In a joint investigation, authorities say agents received information that an apartment in Marshall County was being used to distribute pills being brought to West Virginia from Florida, typically by rental cars.

During the investigation, two traffic stops occurred during which $5,500 in drug proceeds were seized which will be forfeited to the United States as proceeds from the drug activity.

Deem is in the custody of federal marshals.
