COWEN, W.Va. (WBOY) — Two people have been charged after troopers found drugs while responding to a call of them being passed out at a gas pump in Webster County.
On Oct. 16, troopers with the Webster County detachment of the West Virginia State Police received a call about two individuals being passed out in a vehicle at GoMart in Cowen, according to a criminal complaint.
