CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A Cedar Grove man pleaded guilty today to federal drug crimes.
According to court documents, between May 29, 2018, and November 7, 2018, Danny Allen Hudson, 62, sold quantities of oxycodone 30mg pills to a person who was working with law enforcement as a confidential informant on five separate occasions. The drug sale occurred at his residence. On November 20, 2018, officers executed a search warrant on Hudson’s residence. Inside the master bedroom, officers found a 30-06 rifle.
