Weston man arrested on drug-related charges after being found in Sheetz parking lot

BUCKHANNON – A Weston man was arrested over the weekend on drug-related charges after allegedly being found with methamphetamine, marijuana and Subutex in a vehicle in the Sheetz parking lot.

Robert Waugh, 22, of Weston W.Va. was arrested charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver controlled substance, a felony.

According to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s Office filed by investigating officer Patrolman Angel McCauley with the Buckhannon Police Department, on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020 McCauley responded to Sheetz in reference to an unconscious person in a car.

According to the report, when McCauley spoke to the driver, Waugh, Waugh allegedly admitted to having a weed bowl in the car. He was then asked to step out of the vehicle to be examined by Upshur EMS. McCauley searched the vehicle and found a bowl with what he allegedly stated was weed in it.

However, McCauley also found a small white bag in the center console with the bowl, and upon searching the vehicle, she removed a black box from underneath the driver’s seat. According to the report, several items were located inside the box, including a scale, several small bags, a ledger, two small bags of a green leafy substance and two small bags of a crystal-like substance.

Once back at the department, the crystal-like substance was tested and found to be positive for methamphetamine. In a separate small, plastic bag, there were five Subutex pills, the complaint says. The total weight of meth split between bags came to 2.66 grams and both bags of marijuana – the green leafy substance – came to 1.08 grams.

Bail was set at $60,000 cash or surety.

The penalty for a conviction of possession with intent to deliver on each count is imprisonment for one to 15 years in the state penitentiary, a fine of up to $25,000 or both.
