EAST VIEW, W.Va. – The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office arrested two people on methamphetamine charges during a traffic stop.
On May 15, deputies were patrolling the area of Philippi Pike in East View, when they saw a pickup truck with no visible registration light, according to a criminal complaint. After catching up to the truck, deputies saw that the vehicle’s registration was expired.
Upon stopping the vehicle, one of the deputies had a K-9 conduct a free-air sniff, and the dog indicated the presence of drugs on the driver’s side door, the complaint states.
During a search, deputies said they found approximately 32 grams of methamphetamine, 14 clonazepam pills, nine lorazepam pills, digital scales with a leftover crystal-like substance, multiple empty bags and approximately $756.
Darrell Lattea, 35, and Misty Earnest, 37, both of Jane Lew, are charged with possession with intent to deliver and conspiracy.
