Man and woman arrested in Ritchie County on drug charges


A Bridgeport man and a South Charleston woman were arrested in Ritchie County Tuesday after deputies found drugs.

Cody Boram, 27, and Teressa Hall, 33, were stopped along the road in a vehicle with their dome light on and headlights off, according to the Ritchie County Sheriff’s Department. When a deputy approached the vehicle, he noticed small, plastic bags and tin foil with burnt residue near the center console and drug paraphernalia on Boram’s lap, according to court documents.

Hall told deputies she had marijuana in her purse, and when deputies got her purse out of the vehicle, they found a small bag of methamphetamine in the driver’s seat, according to court documents.

Boram told deputies the bag in his lap contained a Klonopin pill, and deputies also found methamphetamine and a needle in his pocket, deputies said. After obtaining his wallet with his ID inside, deputies were able to confirm that Boram also lied about his identity, according to court documents. He told deputies he lied and gave the wrong name because he was on probation and didn’t want to get in trouble.

Hall told deputies she was given the methamphetamine for payment for giving someone a ride and that she was using a digital scale deputies found to see how much it was.

More small, plastic bags were found, along with the digital scale and another bag of methamphetamine, according to court documents.

Hall is charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and Boram is charged with possession of a controlled substance and obstructing an officer.
