BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – The Bridgeport Police Department arrested a man and a woman on drug charges after a traffic stop Wednesday.

On May 15, an officer conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 79 south, near mile marker 123, for an improper lane change, according to a criminal complaint.

While speaking with the driver, Kelly Scyoc, 28, of Lumberport, an officer smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said.  A Harrison County deputy deployed a dog to perform a free-air sniff of the vehicle, which led to a positive indication, according to a criminal complaint.

During a search of the vehicle, police said they found multiple baggies containing a crystal-like substance; digital scales; plastic baggies used for packaging; and other powder-like substances not yet identified.  Police also found a loaded .41 mag revolver in the driver’s side door, according to a criminal complaint.

Police said they determined that Scyoc and a passenger, Phillip Creamer, had traveled from Michigan before being stopped in West Virginia.

Scyoc and Creamer are charged with possession with intent to deliver and conspiracy.  Creamer is also charged with possession of a controlled substance related to an incident in April, in which Bridgeport Police said Creamer had methamphetamine during a traffic stop on Route 20, near Lumberport.

According to Scyoc’s Facebook account, she is an author who has written best-selling new adult and contemporary romance novels under the name K.A. Robinson.
