Corporal Rob Welsh of the Charleston WV Police Department makes contact with a suspicious vehicle. The occupants explain that they are there to pick up “Easy”. Corporal Welsh obtains consent to search the vehicle and finds crystal methamphetamine and heroin. The front passenger claims the white packaged substance that fell from his lap when exiting the vehicle is just sugar that he was going to sell to somebody as fake drugs. Corporal Welsh further searches the car finding a large amount of drug paraphernalia. All suspects deny they have any knowledge of the drugs and claim their innocence. Upon further discussion, the passenger admits that the drugs belong to the driver and that he’s not going to take the rap. Corporal Welsh talks to the driver who eventually admits the drugs are his. The driver is taken to jail while the two passengers are set free.
