MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Four people, three of them from Detroit and one from Morgantown, have been charged after task force members found multiple narcotics while executing a search warrant on a residence in Morgantown.
On Oct. 14, task force members with the Mon Metro Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence on Lorentz Street in Morgantown, according to a criminal complaint.
The reason for the search was to locate multiple individuals known to possess controlled substances with intent to deliver, those individuals being Darrell Pettaway, 31, and Damon Hudgens, 21, both of Detroit, Michigan; as well as Kathryn Rodriguez, 38, of Morgantown, task force members said.
During the search, Pettaway “attempted to flee the residence and was apprehended,” according to complaint.
The search resulted in task force members locating “several ounces” of methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, as well as “bulk” cash, multiple handguns, “bulk” packaging materials, a set of digital scales and “smuggling equipment,” officers said.
Pettaway, Hudgens and Rodriguez have been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and four counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
While officers were searching the residence, Maceoa Chambers, 33, of Detroit, showed up. Officers then found out that he was wanted in Michigan for a parole violation warrant. While searching Chambers, officers found $7,000 on him, according to court documents. They then searched his rental car and found more than five ounces of methamphetamine. more than two ounces of fentanyl and six grams on cocaine.
Chambers is charged with being a fugitive from justice and individual counts of possession to deliver fentanyl, cocaine and methamphetamine.
All four are being held in North Central Regional Jail.
