ROCKBRIDGE, OH – A Rockbridge drug dealer will be heading to prison for five and a half years after pleading guilty to three felony charges in court on Wednesday.

Lindsey Woolever, 32, (AKA Lindsey Coon) pleaded guilty to trafficking in heroin, amended from a charge of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, as well as unlawful transactions in weapons and having weapons under disability.

According to police, between June and September of 2021, Woolever was found to be involved in schemes to obtain illegal narcotics through improperly gained funds.

“According to Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn, Woolever was involved with multiple individuals in traveling to Columbus to purchase large batches of illegal narcotics, including methamphetamine, heroin and thousands of dollars’ worth of fentanyl on a regular basis,” the Athens Police Department reported.

Woolever admitted that she illegally provided firearms to other individuals in addition to not being allowed by law to have those weapons as a previously convicted felon. Woolever was also found to give false information to law enforcement during a missing persons investigation.

Woolever is incarcerated in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail awaiting transfer to prison.
