Two Florida residents and another from Fairmont have admitted their roles in a painkiller distribution ring in Bridgeport, U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld II reports.
Pleading guilty to conspiracy to possess and distribute hydrocodone were David S. Rokisky, 46, and his sister, Deborah M. Tate, 56, of Tampa, and Nino L. Mancino, 43, of Fairmont.
As part of a related investigation, a federal search warrant executed at Tate's Fairmont residence uncovered packages containing hydrocodone pills which had been obtained through prescriptions in Florida and sent to Tate and Mancino for resale.
The trio faces up to 10 years in prison each. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John C. Parr and investigated by the Greater Harrison County Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, comprised of officers and agents from the Bridgeport and Clarksburg police departments, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and West Virginia State Police.
