MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Three Martinsburg residents have admitted their roles in a heroin trafficking operation.

Entering guilty pleas this week in federal court in Martinsburg were 32-year-old Veronica Gladden, 33-year-old Scott Andrew Ours and 37-year-old James Miner Jenkins.

Gladden faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Ours and Jenkins each face up to 20 years and fines of $1 million.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld says the operation that transported heroin from Baltimore into West Virginia was disrupted in June by a 163-count federal indictment encompassing 41 defendants.
