Two arrested after allegedly being found with heroin, drug ledgers

BUCKHANNON – Two city residents were arrested on Feb. 8 after a search warrant turned up drugs and other related paraphernalia.

Ross R. Jeran, 39, and Kindra L. Harvey, 25, both of Buckhannon, were arrested Feb. 8 and each was charged with one count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, heroin, a felony.

According to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s Office, Upshur County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Rodney Rolenson assisted federal law enforcement officers and the Mountain Region Drug and Violent Crime Task Force in the execution of a search warrant at an apartment on South Florida Street.

The police report states that the search warrant operation – conducted last Thursday — was led by the FBI.

“Drug paraphernalia along with scales [and] zip-top bags used for the distribution of narcotics were located in plain view within the apartment,” the complaint states.

After discovering the above-referenced drug paraphernalia, Rolenson obtained a second search warrant.

“The undersigned officer (Rolenson) then obtained a new search warrant for the possible investigation of drug delivery activity,” the police report says. “Marijuana, suspected methamphetamine and suspected heroin along with drug ledgers were located and seized during the search warrant operation.”

Law enforcement officers interviewed Jeran and Harvey and they both allegedly admitted to the sale and delivery of heroin, according to the complaint.

Upshur County Magistrate Mark Davis set bail at $30,000 cash only for both Jeran and Harvey.

The penalty for a conviction of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, heroin, is imprisonment in a state correctional facility for one to 15 years, a fine of up to $25,000, or both.
