Man charged with manufacturing marijuana

June 29, 2009

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- An Inwood, W.Va., man was arraigned over the weekend on a felony count of manufacturing marijuana at his home, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Police on April 15 seized 11 plants, including four that were about 2 feet tall, from Samuel David Sine of 124 Craftsman Lane, according to a complaint filed by Berkeley County Sheriff's Department Lt. Gary Harmison.

The other seven plants were growing in Styrofoam cups and were "just starting," according to Harmison's complaint.

In an arraignment hearing, Magistrate W. Randy Smith on Sunday set a $25,000 bond for the defendant, whom Harmison said he went to visit to ask about possible stolen firearms, according to court records.

Harmison said he did not find any grow lights or other equipment used in marijuana cultivation, but did see two pipes and several small baggies with a razor blade in the living room of the home, according to his complaint.
