An elderly Charleston man admitted in federal court to sell dozens of oxycodone pills to a police informant in February 2013, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin reports.

Daniel B. Moore, 60, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone.

During the plea hearing, Moore admitted that he assisted in the sale of 47 of the pills, sometimes referred to as "roxycodone," to an informant working with the Metro Drug Unit for $1,600. The sale took place at Moore's home on Kirkwood Drive in Charleston, and afterward police searched his home where they retrieved the money used to buy the drugs as well as more oxycodone pills intended for distribution in the Charleston area, Goodwin said.

Moore faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at sentencing, set for Sept. 15.

U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver took Moore's plea.

In other cases:

*Christopher Swann, 24, of Port William, Ohio, was sentenced to six months in prison followed by six months on home confinement for his involvement in a heroin trafficking conspiracy.

Swan had admitted in March that he traveled to Ohio on at least three occasions to purchase heroin for resale in West Virginia.

Swann was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver, who also stipulated that he must work at least 40 hours per week after he completes his prison term.

*Teruko Miller, 29, of Stanaford, West Virginia, pleaded guilty to distributing heroin.

Miller admitted selling heroin to a person who was cooperating with law enforcement authorities in January at a location on Stanaford Road in Beckley.

Miller faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at sentencing, which U.S. District Judge Irene C. Berger set for Sept. 18.

The Beckley/Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Unit conducted the investigation.
