By Staff | Sep 5, 2018

According to New Martinsville Police Chief Tim Cecil, Spencer Sarver, Jesse Glow, and Megan Thompson have been arrested by law enforcement for drug-related offenses.

Chief Cecil said Thompson was arrested by Officer Michael Owens, while Sarver and Glow were arrested by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Cecil said the arrests occurred after a week-long investigation.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, via its official Facebook page, detectives became involved in an investigation on Aug. 31 which primarily involved Thompson, who was “knowingly distributing large amounts of methamphetamine into the area.”

According to MCSO, investigators apprehended Glow and Sarver into custody in Hannibal, Ohio as “both subjects were complicit in delivering 30 grams of methamphetamine to Monroe County Detectives.” MCSO then assisted NMPD in locating Thompson at a New Martinsville hotel, where she was allegedly found to be in possession of an additional 30 grams of methamphetamine.

According to MCSO, Thompson is currently being held at the Northern Regional Jail where she is being held on charges of bulk possession of Methamphetamines and Trafficking in Methamphetamines in both Ohio and West Virginia. Glow and Sarver are currently being held in the Monroe County Jail on charges for bulk possession of Methamphetamines & Trafficking in Methamphetamines.

Those arrests occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 5.

According to MCSO, several other individuals were arrested in the late hours of Sept. 4.

A welfare check was conducted after a vehicle was seen on state property. The welfare check yielded 67 grams of meth and the arrests of Hannah Thomas and Gregory Matthews. Thomas and Matthews were arrested and transported to Monroe County Jail. The two are being held on charges of Bulk Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Drug Abuse Instruments.

Also on Sept. 4, a MCSO sergeant performed a traffic stop on Joseph Lomax for a marked lane violation. According to MCSO, more than three grams of heroin were also obtained. Lomax was arrested for possession of heroin; he was transported to Monroe County Jail.

The Sept. 5 collaborative effort between NMPD and MCSO yielded 60 grams of methamphetamine, while the Sept. 4 arrests yielded 67 grams of methamphetamine and three grams of heroin.
