Police arrest two in drug raid

by Paul Darst

STAFF WRITER

Two Clarksburg residents were arrested Thursday night during a raid in which police seized weapons, cash and four pounds of marijuana.

Christopher J. Rose, 21, and Amber McGinnis, 18, both of 22 Bailey St., were arrested at their residence by members of the Harrison County Narcotics Task Force around 8:30 p.m., Clarksburg Police Chief John Walker said Friday.

Each was arraigned before Harrison County Magistrate Margaret Willet Friday on two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and one count of possession, sale or delivery of a controlled substance, according to court records.

Both charges are felonies.

Bail for each was set at $55,000. That amount was posted, and both were released, according to the records.

The raid came the same day police received information about the drugs, Walker said.

"We got information that the drugs were brought here (Thursday)," Walker said. "We decided it would be a good time."

Clarksburg Police, the West Virginia State Police, the Harrison County Sheriff's Department, the Bridgeport Police Department canine unit and the Clarksburg Fire Department helped with the raid, Walker said.

Police seized the drugs, with a street value of $8,000, two semi-automatic pistols, a 12-gauge shotgun, an undisclosed amount of cash and drug paraphernalia, Walker said.

"They appear to be distributors," he said. "We don't know how big their operation is."

Officers encountered no resistance when they entered the home, Walker said.

"They didn't have time to resist," he said. "They took them by surprise."

No additional arrests are anticipated at this time, Walker said.
