Man Pleads Guilty to Exchanging Drugs for Tires


A trucking company owner faces up to 20 years in prison after admitting that he exchanged drugs for tractor-trailer tires.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 50-year-old Kenneth Ray Cisco of Lesage pleaded guilty on Monday to aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone. Cisco is scheduled to be sentenced May 11.

Cisco owned the defunct Cisco Trucking in Huntington. Goodwin says an undercover federal agent and another individual met with Cisco at the company on March 14, 2013, to exchange six tires for oxycodone. The agent received 33 oxycodone pills.
