CPD Make Warrant & Other Arrests

February 21st, 2017 by WCBC Radio

On February 20th, 2017 officers responded to a residence on Boone St for a report of a wanted subject.  A citizen advised the police that Brittany Sears was at the residence and that she had two active warrants from Mineral County, West Virginia.  When officers arrived at the residence, they contacted the homeowner, along with a roommate.  The owner advised that he was not sure if Sears was inside and invited the police inside to search the residence.  Officers also contacted Floyd Ferguson, who also lived at the residence.  Ferguson stated that Sears was not inside and that he had not seen her. 

When officers entered the residence Ferguson stated that they could not search his room.  When asked which room was his, Ferguson intentionally lied to officers, steering them away from one particular bedroom, then giving them conflicting information.  Ferguson eventually opened the door to a room that he claimed was his bedroom, where officers located Sears.  Sears was placed under arrest.  Ferguson was also placed under arrest for Obstructing and Hindering, as well as Harboring a Fugitive.  When officers attempted to arrest Ferguson, he resisted.  After a brief struggle he was placed under arrest and additionally charged with Resisting Arrest.  He was taken before the District Court Commissioner and released on his own personal recognizance. 

Sears was arrested for two outstanding warrants and charged as a fugitive.  The warrants were for Violation of Probation and Violation of Community Correction Program, which stemmed from an original felony charge of Delivery of a Controlled Substance in West Virginia.  She was taken before the District Court Commissioner and is being held at the Allegany County Detention Center, awaiting extradition.
