ASHTON — Three people, including a man from Detroit, Mich., have been arrested on drug charges.
Deshawn C. Gadson, 19, Detroit, Stella D. Turner, 34, Ashton and Thomas M. Glover, 33, Ashton, have all been charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin. The three appeared for arraignment this week before Magistrate Cheryl Ross who set their bonds at $50,000, each.
According to the criminal complaints filed in Mason County Magistrate Court, on Wednesday, deputies with the Mason County Sheriff’s Department served a warrant on a single-wide trailer located on Regina Lane in Ashton. During a search of the residence, officers reported locating multiple sandwich baggies, a set of digital scales that appeared to have a powdery substance on them and a clear baggie containing a brown powdery substance in it consistent with alleged heroin. In the complaints, both Turner and Glover are identified as residents of the home, while Gadson is identified as being at the residence.
The three were taken to the Western Regional Jail to await arraignment following their arrests. As of Friday evening, both Turner and Glover were still listed as inmates at the Western Regional Jail, while Gadson was no longer listed as being an inmate at the facility.
According to the West Virginia Code, if convicted of the felony charge, defendants can face imprisonment in the state correctional facility for not less than one year nor more than 15 years, or fined not more than $25,000, or both.
Deputy J.L. Cavender of the sheriff’s department is the arresting officer in this case.
