MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Three men who police allege took part in crack cocaine deals with confidential informants Thursday have been arrested, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Mark Lewis King, 30, of 702 Virginia Ave., Apt. 2, Martinsburg, was arraigned Friday by Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on one felony count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance after selling $250 in crack to an informant at his home, according to a complaint filed by Martinsburg Police Department Patrolman D.L. English.

King was in Eastern Regional Jail on a $75,000 cash-only bond Friday night.

Also arrested Thursday were Terry Lee Bullock Jr., of 237 Masters Drive, Kearneysville, W.Va., and Shavon Lynn Craig of 245 Farm Grove Lane, Martinsburg, on felony counts of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and conspiracy to deliver crack cocaine, according to complaints filed by West Virginia State Police Troopers C.A. Ellwanger and D.M. Hart.


Craig, 25, also was charged with fleeing on foot, no operators and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle after he allegedly sold $150 in crack cocaine to an informant at Martin's Landing apartment complex, according to a separate complaint by Trooper D.S. See.

Bullock, 36, was found in possession of about a half-ounce of crack cocaine in the parking lot of the Spring Mills Wal-Mart after he agreed to meet an informant there for a drug deal, according to Ellwanger's complaint.

Bullock and Craig were in Eastern Regional Jail on $75,000 cash-only bonds set by Miller, according to court records.
