MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Police officers called to investigate an armed robbery report instead charged a man with possession of three different drugs, while a separate case involving a traffic stop for illegal window tint led to the seizure of two different drugs, according to court records.

n In the first case, Decoley Allan Jones, 27, of 309 1/2 E. Burke St., Martinsburg, was charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

Lt. K.C. Bohrer, with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department, was called Tuesday to investigate a report of a robbery in the Wildflower Creek subdivision, records state.

A man told police that a white car had followed him home and that once both cars were stopped, a man got out of the white car, showed a gun and stole the victim's pants, identification and $350, police said.

While speaking to the man, Bohrer saw a white car drive into the area. The man and his mother yelled that was the alleged robber's car, prompting police to stop the car, records state.

Officers found 17.4 grams of marijuana and a knife in Jones' pocket, records allege. In his car, police found a small bag containing 16.6 grams of crack cocaine and another bag containing 3.7 grams of powder cocaine, police alleged.

Jones, who was not charged in connection with a robbery, was being held in Eastern Regional Jail Wednesday night on $60,000 bail.

ยท In the other, unrelated case, two Martinsburg men were charged.

Cordrice A. Clark, alias Q, 19, of 700 W. Burke St., Apt. 4, was charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, driving on a license revoked for DUI and window tint violation.

Corey Michael Dokes, 18, of 201 N. Kentucky Ave., Apt. 102, was charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Dokes was being held in Eastern Regional Jail on $50,000 bail, and Clark was being held on $55,500 bail.

Conviction on a charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance carries a penalty of one to five years in prison.
