Authorities in Monongalia County have arrested two men on federal drug charges.

The Mon Valley Drug Task Force, assisted by the Morgantown Police Department and the Monongalia County Sheriff's Department, conducted two traffic stops in the Morgantown area on Wednesday.

The authorities estimated the value of the seized items is approximately $100,000.

Jimerson and Evans are in the North Central Regional Jail, with bail set at $150,000 and $70,000, respectively. Both are charged with possession with intent to deliver a schedule 2 controlled substance.
