Martinsburg man faces felony drug charges after fire

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A fire at a Bunker Hill, W.Va., home on Jan. 20 led to the discovery of more than 20 pounds of marijuana in the basement of the residence, according to court records.

Jamie Lewis Jeans of 218 Budding Dogwood Road, was arraigned Monday by Berkeley County Magistrate Joan V. Bragg on one felony count of distribution of marijuana and one felony count of cultivation of marijuana, according to court documents.

In addition to several baggies of marijuana, police found 18 marijuana plants in a “grow operation” room inside the basement of what fire officials described as a small ranch-style house, according to court documents.

The marijuana was spotted by firefighters, who responded to the home to battle the blaze, according to court records.
