CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Police raided a house on North West Street Wednesday afternoon and found about 20 bags of suspected cocaine, said a Charles Town Police Department spokesman.

When police entered the house, a teenager jumped through a window at a back door, said Detective Steve Harris.

The teenager was taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital for treatment of a laceration, Harris said.

When police entered the house shortly after 4 p.m., five people were inside, Harris said.

A man and woman were charged and were being held in the Eastern Regional Jail Wednesday night, Harris said.

Lorraine Holmes, 18, of 118 N. West St. and Cameron Carr, 19, same address, were both charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, Harris said.

The search warrant used to search the house was the result of an ongoing investigation by the police department's Criminal Investigation Division, Harris said.


The investigation started, in part, due to citizen complaints about drug trafficking in the area near the home, Harris said.
