HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A South Point, Ohio man who was caught selling methamphetamine in Huntington last year was sentenced to 62 months in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Jose Cisneros, 28, previously entered a guilty plea to distributing methamphetamine. Stuart commended the investigative efforts of the FBI Drug Task Force.
“We’re prosecuting record numbers of meth dealers and the convictions are resulting in significant prison sentences,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “Meth dealers should take heed.”
On October 25, 2018, an informant working at the direction of the FBI contacted Cisneros to arrange a meth transaction. Cisneros subsequently met the informant at a location in Huntington where he sold the informant one and a half ounces of methamphetamine in exchange for $650. Cisneros was arrested on November 6, 2018, in the 2900 block of 5th Avenue in Huntington and agents seized additional meth that Cisneros intended to distribute.
Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution. The sentence was imposed by United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers.
