FAIRMONT, W.Va. (WBOY) — Two people have been arrested after an attempted home confinement check led Marion County Sheriff’s deputies to find meth in Fairmont.
The check happened on Friday, June 2 on Locust Avenue, according to a criminal complaint.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they said they found the GPS monitoring device of Christopher Wilson, 29, of Fairmont, but did not locate him within the residence; instead, deputies said they located an “ash tray in the back right bedroom containing a white powder and a smoking pipe.”Residents on edge after Morgantown break-in caught on video
The substance tested positive for methamphetamine, and deputies also located a safe in the bedroom with four plastic bags containing meth, cash, unused packaging materials and a digital scale with meth residue inside it, according to the complaint.
Upon speaking with Wilson’s home confinement officer, deputies said they learned Destiny Bogo, 23, of Fairmont, also lived in the home. She was later taken into custody, deputies said, and Wilson was not located at that time.
Bogo was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. She is being held in North Central Regional Jail on $20,012 bail.
On June 12, officers with the Fairmont Police Department observed Wilson riding a bicycle on 6th Street and Prospect Avenue in Fairmont, according to a separate criminal complaint.
Officers then conducted a stop on Wilson at the intersection of Carleton Street and Locust Avenue, and upon detaining Wilson for multiple warrants they located “two plastic tied off bags […] within several feet of the encounter […] that held a large quantity of white crystalline substance,” officers said.FBI offering $15K for information on West Virginia fugitive
