MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Berkeley County man is accused of selling more than a pound of marijuana to a police informant this summer in the Inwood, W.Va., Food Lion parking lot, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Eric Scott Taylor, of 2805 Poor House Road in Martinsburg, was arraigned Friday by Magistrate Harry L. Snow on two felony counts of delivery of marijuana and one misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana, according to court documents.

Taylor was being held in Eastern Regional Jail on a $105,000 bond, according to jail and court records.

West Virginia State Police Trooper C.S. Maynard said in a complaint filed against Taylor that drug deals on July 31 and Aug. 9 occurred in the Food Lion parking lot, according to court documents.

Police said the informant paid Taylor $1,400 for a pound of marijuana in the first deal and $1,000 for about a half pound in the second, according to court documents.

Taylor was detained Thursday in the Inwood area by members of the Eastern Panhandle Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, ATF agents and West Virginia State Police.
