CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Three local men were charged following a police pursuit on W.Va. 51 Saturday morning and police alleged that they found $2,350 in crack and $1,543 in cash after the car was stopped near Childs Road, court records say.

David Allen Twyman, 28, of 426 E. North St., Charles Town; Joroy Nigel Twyman, 25, of 100 Cider Lane, Ranson, W.Va.; and Jorfory Nevin Twyman, 25, of 100 Cider Lane, Ranson, were charged with possession with intent, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.

David Allen Twyman was being held in the Eastern Regional Jail Monday night on $250,000 bond and the other two men were free on $250,000 bond each.


The incident began at about 3:10 a.m. when West Virginia State Police Trooper T.L. Lind said he saw a silver-colored car traveling east on W.Va. 51 at a high rate of speed, court records say.

Lind said he clocked the car at 70 mph, turned around and got behind the car, court records say.

Lind said the car did not slow down and he turned on his emergency lights and siren. The car traveled for about three to four miles, Lind said.

As the car and Lind passed Childs Road, the driver tossed a plastic bag containing a white substance out the driver's side window, court records allege.

The driver stopped the car about 200 feet down the road, Lind said.

Jorfory Nevin Twyman was the driver, Lind said.

A plastic bag that was found in the area contained four smaller bags with powdered cocaine in them and one bag with crack, Lind said.

Lind opened the driver's side door of the car and found a plastic bag that appeared to contain crack, court records say.

Lind said the search netted 4.9 grams of powdered cocaine valued at $490, 23.5 grams of crack valued at $2,350 and $1,543 in cash.
