On Apr. 24, deputies with the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department responded to a residence at the Skyview Apartments in Morgantown in reference to a domestic disturbance, according to a criminal complaint.

When deputies arrived on scene, they met with Caleb Luzier, 24, of Morgantown, who said he had been in a dispute with his mother at the residence, and that he “threw a cup of water at” her, deputies said.

After meeting with Luzier, deputies were informed by the communications center that Luzier “was wanted through Morgantown Police Department for a brandishing charge,” at which point deputies placed him into custody, according to a complaint.

While searching Luzier, deputies found “a small red container” which had “a fine white powder” inside, as well as a “snorting straw,” and Luzier informed deputies that “it was heroin and the straw was used to snort” it,” deputies said.

Luzier is being held in North Central Regional Jail.
