Casper Woman Denies Involvement in Meth Trafficking Ring
A woman accused of facilitating methamphetamine sales in the Casper area as part of a multi-state drug trafficking ring pleaded not guilty to a felony charge Tuesday morning in Natrona County District Court.
Victoria Ball, 27, pleaded not guilty to a single count of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine. She could face up to 20 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted.
Ball is also known as Paige Hatch.
According to an affidavit written by special agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, Ball acted as a "middleman" for at least one alleged co-conspirator involved in what agents said was an "ongoing and multi-state drug trafficking organization."
Charging papers say one person involved allegedly brought meth up from Colorado as often as three times per week.
Ball remains in custody. Her bond is set at $10,000 cash or surety.
A trial in the matter is set for June 26.
