Three admit to participating in a drug trafficking organization in Philadelphia

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Three West Virginia residents have admitted to their involvement in an organization that supplied large quantities of methamphetamine, fentanyl and cocaine to north central West Virginia.

Jordan Spadafore, 33, of Morgantown; Stephanie Miller, 47, of Charleston; and Olivia Gibson, 21, of Ona, pleaded guilty this week to federal drug charges. According to court documents, the three worked with Rodney Johnson, 46, of Philadelphia, who allegedly supplied significant quantities of illicit drugs to Monongalia County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda Wesley is prosecuting the cases on behalf of the government.

This case was investigated by the Mon Metro Anti-Drug Task Force, an initiative funded by HIDTA. The task force is made up of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the West Virginia State Police, the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Office, Monongalia County Prosecutor’s Office, Morgantown Police Department, WVU Police Department, Granville Police Department and Star City Police Department.

This effort is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) operation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level criminal organizations that threaten the United States through a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach. Additional information about the OCDETF program can be found at https://www.justice.gov/OCDETF.

The presiding judge was U.S. Magistrate Michael John Aloi.
