FAIRMONT, W.Va. (WBOY) — Two women have been charged after deputies found meth in a vehicle stopped by the river in Marion County.
On Nov. 6, deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle near the river on Community Drive in Fairmont, according to a criminal complaint.
