September 24th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Troopers from the McHenry Barrack stopped a 2005 Dodge Neon, traveling eastbound on I-68 at the 14 mile marker. The vehicle was stopped for an inoperable brake light and following too closely. During the course of the traffic stop a K-9 scan of the vehicle was conducted, which resulted in a positive alert. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of quantities of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, Clonazepam tablets and Buprenorphine tablets. As a result, the driver, Brenda Kay Watson, 60 years old  of Green Springs, WV and the two passengers, Timothy Brent Kirby, 39 of Romney, WV and Timothy James Saville, 53 of Paw Paw, WV were all charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, possession of methamphetamine and possession of CDS paraphernalia. A third passenger, Jonathan Vance Whetzel Jr. 27 of Points, WV was charged with possession of CDS paraphernalia and possession of Buprenorphine. All four subjects were taken before a district court commissioner for a bond hearing.
