A West Virginia woman has pleaded guilty to a charge stemming from a heroin bust made in Hancock County last year. 30-year-old Shawntrina Alford of Huntington, West Virginia pleaded guilty to a count of possession of heroin during a hearing last Thursday.

The State Highway Patrol says Alford and 35-year-old Terrell Walker had roughly a half-pound of heroin in their car when a state trooper pulled them over for a lane violation on I-75 on August 15th. The investigators say the heroin was worth more than $43,000.

Alford’s sentencing date is June 3rd.
