Four Wilson County residents face federal drug charges involving heroin and methamphetamine.

A federal grand jury in Greenville indicted Brian Allen Gardner, 39, of Wilson; Sean Jason Harstine, 31, of Lucama; Crystal Marie Pate, 32, of Bailey; and James Madison Parker, 27, of Wilson with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and heroin, federal officials said.

If convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and heroin, the defendants could face up to 40 years in prison, a $5 million fine and four years of supervised release following any prison term. They also could face up to 20 years in prison and a term of three years of supervised released for the substantive distribution charges, officials said.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case.
