Fayette County woman pleads guilty to drug charges

FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. — A Fayette County woman pleaded guilty this week to drug charges.

Fayette County Anthony Ciliberti said Heather Hewitt, 42, formerly of Prosperity, plead guilty Thursday to conspiracy to deliver fentanyl and over 50 grams of methamphetamines. This follows Hewitt’s prior conviction of drug-related charges. Hewitt faces a sentence of up to 60 years in prison for the conspiracy conviction and 6 to 30 years for the delivery of fentanyl.

Hewitt sold the meth in Fayette County in late 2021. She was found with over 500 grams of fentanyl, over 900 grams of meth, approximately 75 grams of cocaine, $125,172 in cash, multiple digital scales, and five firearms during her arrest on Feb., 19, 2022.

Authorities said the additional $83,747 in cash was found from three locations away from Hewitt’s home and over $40,000 was confiscated from Hewitt’s Cash App account following her arrest.

The case was investigated by the Central Regional Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

Hewitt’s sentencing hearing is set for May 16 at 3:00 p.m.
