Two men were arrested Monday morning on Main Street in New Martinsville when a call regarding a supposed car break-in led to the discovery of heroin stamps and needles.

Around 9 a.m. Monday police received a call about a vehicle being broken into on Main Street.

Captain Mike Thomas responded wherein Tyler Fauber, 27, of New Martinsville told him he thought his car was broken into and that his checkbook was missing. Upon looking for the checkbook, Captain Thomas found heroin stamps and needles in the console. Police were then prompted to get a search warrant for a house on 446 Main Street where matching heroin stamps were found.

Fauber and Jeremy White, 24, of Paden City, said they had gone to Pittsburgh and had purchased bricks of the drug.

The two are being charged with possession with the intent to deliver heroin and are presently being held in the Northern Regional Jail in lieu of $20,000 bonds.
