A federal grand jury in Beckley has indicted four Greenbrier County residents on heroin trafficking charges.

Named in the indictments were:

*Tiffany Rose Arbogast, 24, of Lewisburg, charged with four counts of distributing heroin in the Lewisburg area on two occasions in December 2012 and again in June and July.

*Christopher Miller, 32, of Alderson, charged with two counts of distributing heroin in the Alderson area in August and September.

*Joshua Osborne, 30, of Alderson, charged with two counts of distributing heroin in the Alderson area in August.

*Amanda Nicole Canaday, 26, White Sulphur Springs, charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, also in August in the White Sulphur Springs area.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Miller and Canaday have been remanded to the custody of U.S. marshals pending trial. A hearing will be held this week to determine whether Osborne and Arbogast also will be remanded, Goodwin said.

The cases were investigated by the Greenbrier County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney John File is handling the prosecutions.
