Washington Woman Sentenced to 10-Years for Drug Conspiracy and Money Laundering
A federal judge sentenced a Daviess County woman to 10-years in prison this week for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine and Money Laundering.
56-year-old Ruby Ramsey of Washington pleaded guilty to the charges on January 23rd.
At the time of her guilty plea, Ramsey admitted that she was involved in sending parcels containing methamphetamine to southwestern Indiana and distributing large amounts in the Pike County area.
She also deposited approximately $3,000 at a bank in Washington from proceeds of methamphetamine sales.
Ramsey was one of 15 people, 11 of them from Washington, who were arrested in September of last year as part of a year and a half investigation into a meth distribution organization.
The investigation was initiated by the Daviess County Sheriff's office and investigated with the Drug Enforcement Administration and Indiana State Police.
