MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Police seized five baggies of marijuana and $3,050 in cash in a traffic stop early Wednesday on Interstate 81 near Exit 12, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Michael Nicholas Calder of 36 Globe St., Martinsburg, and Delano A. Butler of Inkster, Mich., were arraigned by Berkeley County Magistrate Sandra L. Miller on one felony count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and one felony count of conspiracy, according to court records.

Calder, 25, also was charged with driving under the influence, the court records said.

Berkeley County Sheriff’s Deputy Morris Stewart stopped the mens’ vehicle just before 4 a.m., the records said.

The deputy said neither man admitted the marijuana belonged to them, the records said.  It was found individually bagged inside a larger bag in the middle console of the vehicle.

The cash was found in Butler’s possession wrapped in a rubber band, the records said.


The deputy said Butler, 31, told him that he did not have a job and got the money from a trip to a casino.

Stewart said in his complaint that Butler later indicated he got it from his tax return, the records said.

Calder failed field sobriety tests, and a chemical breath test indicated the concentration of alcohol in his blood was .129, the records said.

The legal limit is .08.
