Two women were arrested in Marion County on Thanksgiving after deputies found methamphetamine.
Cassie Neville, 35, of Mannington, and Rebecca Smith, 25, of Smithfield, were found going through items in an abandoned house on Curtisville Road in Mannington, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department. Deputies responded to the call after receiving a tip that the pair entered the abandoned house, which is now owned by Murray Energy.
When deputies responded to the house, they found Neville and Smith in the basement with a flashlight and a hatchet handle. The pair was taken into custody and searched, deputies said.
Deputies found 3.5 grams of methamphetamine on Smith’s person and a container of methamphetamine in Neville’s backpack. They also found digital scales and unused, small plastic bags, deputies said.
Neville and Smith are each charged with one count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, one count of burglary and one count of conspiracy.
