According to Wetzel County Sheriff Mike Koontz, Corporal Roger Spragg received information Feb. 13 from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. The information regarded two fugitives, along with some drug activity, that could be located in the Smithfield area of Wetzel County.

Sheriff Koontz said that, through the information, Corporal Spragg was able to obtain and execute search warrant at a particular residence in Smithfield.

The Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office, along with a member of the West Virginia State Police, were able to execute the search warrant. As a result, three individuals were arrested, and approximately 17 grams of methamphetamine, with a street value of more than $2,000, was seized.
