Woodbridge Woman Sentenced for Drug Trafficking

Woman Sentenced to Prison for Drug Trafficking

 A Woodbridge woman was sentenced today in Alexandria District Court to five years in prison for buying and selling wholesale quantities of high-grade methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Nina Booher, 36, bought pounds of methamphetamine for redistribution to her customers in northern Virginia. Beginning in early 2018, Booher was buying pounds of methamphetamine every two or three weeks from her boyfriend and co-conspirator, Matthew Colby Cochran. Then, when she learned the identity of her boyfriend’s supplier, who was based in New York, she started buying methamphetamine directly from the supplier.

In November 2018, law enforcement searched Booher’s home in Woodbridge and found more than 200 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, smoking devices, a digital scale, packaging materials, and thousands of dollars in cash.

Earlier this month, Cochran was sentenced to three years in prison for his involvement in the conspiracy.

This matter was investigated by the Washington Field Office’s Safe Streets/HIDTA Task Force – Northern Virginia which is composed of agents and detectives from Fairfax County, Prince William County Police, Loudoun County Sherriff’s Office, Leesburg Police, Vienna Police, Alexandria City Police, and Herndon Police.
