KINGWOOD, W.Va. — An Ohio man has been charged after deputies say he had nearly two ounces of suspected fentanyl in his vehicle.
According to a criminal complaint, on Nov. 1, deputies with the Preston County Sheriff’s Department were observing traffic near Dogtown Road in Kingwood when they saw a gold Chevrolet sedan. After running the vehicle’s plates, their system “showed that the license plate belonged to a Ford.”
Deputies then performed a traffic stop on the vehicle and said they came into contact with Jimmie McCully, 20, of Akron, Ohio. A K9 unit was then deployed to search the vehicle where deputies said they located 56 grams of suspected fentanyl.
McCully has been charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. He is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $150,000 bond.
