MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Martinsburg man faces drug and weapons charges following a sting operation by Martinsburg City Police on Saturday night, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.
According to court records, an informant drove into the Centre Street area and attempt to buy a "forty" of crack cocaine.
The informant used recorded currency to pay a man who got into his car $40 for two pieces of suspected crack cocaine, which later tested positive for cocaine in a field test, court records alleged.
Police monitored the purchase physically and electronically, court records alleged.
Police stopped the vehicle under the pretense that the informant was driving without a license, and the seller was ordered out of the car, according to court records.
