BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — A sentencing hearing was held on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 for a man accused of dealing opioid drugs in Raleigh County. Steven Rumbold, 49, of Glen Morgan as sentenced to serve 18 months in federal prison.
Rumbold admitted he sold oxycodone to a confidential informant on July 25, 2015. He also told investigators he sold oxycodone and heroin from his home in Glen Morgan. Officers with the Beckley/Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force searched Rumbold’s home and found other controlled substances and guns.
“Those who continue to perpetuate the opioid epidemic will be prosecuted,” said U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart. “West Virginias have already paid too high a price at the hands of drug dealers like Rumbold.”
U.S. Attorney Stuart commended the efforts of the drug task force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The hearing was held in front of U.S. District Judge Irene Berger.
