Meanwhile, in other police news, a North Carolina man was arrested on Feb. 1 on felony charges for bringing in a large amount of marijuana into West Virginia.
According to a criminal complaint filed at the Boone County Courthouse, Che Guevara McClurkin, 43, of Charlotte, N.C., was driving a maroon Kia with North Carolina plates when police spotted him driving erratically on U.S. 119 south in Boone County prior to an illegal lane change.
Members of the U.S. 119 Drug Task Force had also received information that a car matching that description would allegedly be traveling on U.S. 119 south with a bulk load of marijuana.
After a traffic stop was initiated, a K-9 unit was used to detect marijuana inside the vehicle, police said in the complaint.
Officers seized approximately four pounds of packaged marijuana.
McClurkin allegedly told police that he intended to deliver the marijuana to Logan County.
Kevin Thomas, McClurkin’s passenger, was arrested for being a fugitive from justice out of Georgia, according to Boone County Prosecuting Attorney Keith Randolph.
