MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Four men arraigned over the weekend in Berkeley County Magistrate Court are accused of dealing cocaine and marijuana, according to court records.

Miguel A. Lopez Hernandez, 28, and Saul Alvarado Roman, 27, both of Winchester, Va., were charged with distribution of cocaine and were in Eastern Regional Jail on Monday, each on $100,000 cash-only bonds set by Magistrate Harry L. Snow.

Gilberto Vega-Reyes, 49, of 234A Bellview Drive in Martinsburg, was in jail Monday on charges of possession with intent to deliver cocaine and operating a vehicle with a license suspended for driving under the influence, according to jail and court records.

Snow set a $55,000 cash-only bond for Vega on Sunday.

David Todd Walls, 41, of Inwood, W.Va., was in jail Monday on a $100,000 cash-only bond set by Snow on two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance (marijuana and cocaine), according to court records.


Hernandez and Roman were arrested Friday in Inwood by West Virginia State Police officers after the Eastern Panhandle Drug and Violent Crime Task Force arranged a $1,200 drug deal for 28 grams of cocaine in the Food Lion parking lot, police said in a complaint filed in magistrate court.

On Saturday night, Vega-Reyes was arrested by West Virginia State Police troopers M.A. Cole and J.J. Bowman in the parking lot of 7-Eleven at West King Street and Winchester Avenue, according to Cole's complaint.

Vega-Reyes had 10.7 grams of cocaine in four bags, one in his pocket and three in the vehicle he was driving, according to Cole.

Warrants issued in January 2007 for Walls' arrest after he allegedly sold marijuana for $20 and cocaine for $150 to an informant in June 2006 at the 7-Eleven convenience store off Nadenbousch Lane and U.S. 11 were served Friday, according to court records.
