HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. --Â A traffic stop Thursday night in Harpers Ferry led to two arrests and a major drug investigation involving four search warrants, Harpers Ferry Police Chief Donald Buracker said.
Lauren Kay Charbonneau, 37, of Shepherdstown, W.Va., and William Gordon, 35, of Morgantown, W.Va., each were charged with possession with intent to deliver and transportation of a controlled substance into the state, Buracker said.
The investigation began when an officer stopped a vehicle on southbound U.S. 340 for crossing over the double yellow line, police said. Charbonneau, the driver, was acting nervous, so police searched the car and found two large plastic bags containing about 4.4 grams of marijuana, police said. Gordon, the front seat passenger, had wrapping papers and $1,464 on his person, police said.
Additional charges of grand larceny and obstructing an officer were filed against Charbonneau after she allegedly picked up $1,100 of the money seized from Gordon during booking, Buracker said.
