Wheeling Man Faces Multiple Charges of Drug Possession

Posted: Updated:
MARSHALL COUNTY, W.Va. -

Police say a Wheeling man is behind bars for not holding up his end of the bargain after being arrested for possessing drugs.

Jay Scott Smith, 42, was pulled over on Route 2 in Marshall County for faulty registration back on October 18th.

During the stop, West Virginia State Police say he seemed to be nervous and admitted to putting fictitious plates on the vehicle.

After searching Smith's car, a trooper found several prescription pills and marijuana seeds.

The trooper called to have the car towed and took Smith to the State Police Detachment in Moundsville. On the way to the detachment, Troopers say Smith offered to do "buys" for the Drug Task Force.

Smith was given the chance to make buys for the Drug Task Force, but did not cooperate, so a warrant was issued for his arrest.

State Police made the arrest at a Wheeling home and Smith now faces three counts of Possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver or manufacture.

He was arraigned by Marshall county Magistrate Mark Kerwood and his bond has been set at $15,000.
