Columbus man facing drug charges in West Virginia

Jul 27, 2012

A Columbus man is the first person to be convicted in West Virginia on federal charges of distributing bath salts. 35-year-old Steven Kohl also pleaded guilty Wednesday to aiding and abetting interstate travel in aid of a racketeering enterprise. The charge stems from Kohl's role in bringing the synthetic drugs to West Virginia in September 2011.  A sentencing date is pending.
