CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — A woman has been charged after officers found fentanyl and methamphetamine while on a suspicious vehicle call in Clarksburg.
On Sept. 21, officers with the Clarksburg Police Department responded to Byrd Lane in Clarksburg in reference to a suspicious vehicle call, according to a criminal complaint.
While on scene, officers located the vehicle parked in the roadway and made contact with a male driver and female passenger; the female was identified as Renee Thomas, 42, of Clarksburg, officers said.
A K9 unit then performed a free air sniff around the vehicle which resulted in a positive indication for the odor of drugs, according to the complaint.
Officers searched the vehicle and located 15 grams of fentanyl, 8 grams of methamphetamine, a “large number” of empty plastic bags and a set of digital scales, officers said.
