Delaware native sentenced for heroin trafficking in Harrison County

CLARKSBURG, W.Va.– A Delaware native has received a sentence for his involvement in trafficking drugs into North Central West Virginia.

Antonio DeJesus, 28, who was residing in Clarksburg, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley Monday to 46 months in prison for heroin trafficking.

An investigation by the Clarksburg Police Department and the Greater Harrison County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, revealed that DeJesus conspired with others to possess and distribute heroin in Harrison County throughout August and September 2014.

DeJesus pleaded guilty in December 2014 to one count of Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and to Distribute Heroin.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Morgan prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.
