Another Carbon woman admits part in drug dealing
Another Carbon County woman admitted her part in a drug conspiracy dealing in crack cocaine and cocaine.
Wednesday in federal court in Scranton Victoria Ann Argott, 34, of Lansford, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute cocaine. She admitted her part in a cocaine dealing conspiracy.
Her plea came one day after a Nesquehoning woman admitted her part in the same operation. On Tuesday Bonnie J. Vosburgh, 22, pleaded to the same charge.
The U.S. Attorney's office alleged that Argott participated in a conspiracy to distribute 28 grams of cocaine in and around Carbon County. That was the same allegation made of Vosburgh.
Authorities said Argott and her co-conspirators set up and used drug storage and distribution facilities in the area.
The investigation of the conspiracy and eventual arrests made was conducted by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives along with Lansford and Nesquehoning police.
Senior U.S. District Judge Edwin M. Kosik accepted the plea but deferred sentencing to a date to be set. Under the terms of Argott's plea bargain she is to receive a prison sentence of 40 months, followed by four years of supervised release.
