On March 7, troopers with the Marion County detachment of the West Virginia State Police executed an arrest warrant for an individual who was located at a residence on Walnut Ave. in Fairmont, according to a criminal complaint.

Upon arriving at the residence, troopers “detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the windows of the entrance” prior to making contact with Carleton Meade, 60, of Fairmont, troopers said.
