Police: Woman arrested for attempting to sell marijuana at Stonecoal Lake

FRENCH CREEK – A French Creek woman was arrested after she allegedly told police she’d gone to the Stonecoal Lake dock to sell marijuana.

Chasity Reed, 31, of French Creek, was arrested Monday, Nov. 4, for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, marijuana, a felony, and possession of methamphetamine, a misdemeanor.

According to the criminal complaint filed by investigating officer state Natural Resources Police Officer Tanner Collins, DNR police were on patrol at Stonecoal Lake when they spotted Reed.

When the Upshur County E911 Communication Center ran Reed’s name through its database, the Comm Center informed officers there was a warrant for her arrest.

Reed was placed under arrest and read her Miranda Rights, according to the file.

The report says Reed was in possession of two bags containing a green leafy substance, one clear container with a green leafy substance and another bag holding a clear/white crystal-like substance she allegedly said was methamphetamine.

Collins asked her what she was going to do with the marijuana, and she said she was there to sell it for $50 to an individual.

“She said she needed the money to get her through the week,” Collins wrote in the complaint.

Magistrate Kay Hurst set bail at $20,000 for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, marijuana, and $2,500 for possession of methamphetamine.

If convicted of possession with intent to deliver, Reed faces confinement in the state penitentiary for not less than one year nor more than 15 years, a fine of up to $25,000 or both. The penalty for a conviction of possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine is confinement in jail for a term of 90 days to six months, a fine of up to $1,000 or both.
