CHARLESTON, WV -

A Barboursville man who took part in a marijuana conspiracy from 2012 to the summer of 2013, pleaded guilty today to a federal drug charge. Brandon L. Madden, 33, pleaded guilty in federal court in Huntington to conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

In July of 2013, United States Postal Inspectors intercepted a package containing controlled substances that was supposed to be delivered to Madden. When confronted by Inspectors, Madden admitted his role in the drug conspiracy. In addition to pleading guilty, Madden will forfeit $16,640.00 in cash, and a 2013 Dodge Durango seized by the Postal Service in connection with this case.

Madden faces up to 10 years in federal prison when he is sentenced according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.
