Report: Synthetic drug dealer from Pound gets 3.5 years in jail


A Pound, Virginia man was sentenced to three and half years in jail Monday in Wise County Circuit Court after pleading guilty to selling synthetic drugs.

A report from Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp said Matthew Ryan Addington, 33, had been charged with two counts of distribution of a schedule I synthetic drug and one count of distribution of an imitation substance.

Slemp said evidence presented in court showed Addington sold synthetic marijuana labeled as "Geeked Up," Bizarro" and "24K Monkey" to an undercover informant on three different occasions between October 2015 and May 2016.
