Winooski Woman Charged with Distribution of Methamphetamine
WINOOSKI, Vt. - The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont announced today that Julie Overfield, 62, of Winooski, Vermont was arrested Wednesday during the execution of a search warrant at her residence. Overfield was charged by criminal complaint with Distribution of Methamphetamine. Overfield is scheduled to appear on Monday before United States Magistrate Judge Kevin J. Doyle.
According to court records, law enforcement used a confidential source to purchase methamphetamine from Overfield in early March. A federal search warrant was granted to search Overfield’s apartment, from which law enforcement seized approximately 27 grams of suspected cocaine base, 64 grams of suspected cocaine, and 15 grams of suspected methamphetamine. Officers also located multiple digital scales and packaging materials.
The United States Attorney’s Office emphasizes that a criminal complaint contains allegations only and that Overfield is presumed innocent until and unless convicted of a crime.
United States Attorney Nikolas P. Kerest commended the investigatory efforts of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Winooski Police Department.
The prosecutor is Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan Ophardt. Overfield is represented by the Federal Public Defender.
