Crack cocaine, cash, marijuana seized

Derrick Stanford Spencer, 31, of no fixed address, was in Eastern Regional Jail Monday evening after being arraigned by Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on two felony counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance on Saturday, court records show.

Spencer was found on Friday in the 300 block of East Burke Street with two cell phones, the cash and 5.3 grams of marijuana, according to a complaint filed by Martinsburg Police Department Patrolman J.L. Harper.

The defendant dropped the rocks of crack cocaine, which were individually packaged in a sandwich bag that Harper thought was trash near some bushes, according to Harper's complaint.

An anonymous caller, however, alerted police that Spencer "dropped something," according to the officer's complaint.

Upon returning to the scene, Harper found the crack cocaine, according to court records.

The officer said no other individuals were near where the drugs were found after Spencer left the location in the 300 block of East Burke Street, according to court records.

Spencer was convicted of distributing an imitation substance and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, according to Harper's complaint.
