MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — An Inwood, W.Va., man was in Eastern Regional Jail Tuesday night on 10 felony charges after he was found with 672 pills and $1,505 in cash last month, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court and jail records.

William G. Arrowood Jr. of 141 Shickle Lane was arraigned Tuesday by Magistrate Harry L. Snow on five counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and five counts of transporting a controlled substance onto the grounds of the jail, according to court documents.

Snow set a $100,000 bond for the defendant, who police said was found asleep in a blue Toyota Matrix at the Sheetz in Inwood just before 2 a.m. Dec. 11, the court documents said.

The vehicle was parked, but the engine was running, and it took about five minutes to wake the defendant, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Cochran said in a complaint filed in magistrate court.

Police allege the defendant failed field sobriety tests and was charged with driving under the influence of drugs second offense after discovering he previously was convicted of the charge, the documents said.

After being arrested, correctional officers at the jail found Arrowood in possession of five different types of pills that were separately bagged within a baggie that was found in the defendant’s underwear, the documents said.
