Among those arrested and arraigned in Upshur County Magistrate Court were Scott Sheets, 37, of 512 Broad Run Church Road, Jane Lew, on felony charges of operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab, conspiracy and possession of substances used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. His bond was set at $175,000.

According to the complaint filed in Magistrate Court, Sheets was allegedly in possession of pseudoephedrine tablets, a lithium battery and dirty coffee filters having a residue of methamphetamine on them. The complaint stated that on May 19, Sheets was at a residence on Randolph Street allegedly operating a clandestine drug lab when a fire occurred. A later search of the residence revealed a drug lab, according to the complaint. Another arrest from the same event was Shauna L. Winnings, 30, of 1729 Glady Creek Road, Crawford. Her bond was set at $150,000.

Timothy Baxa, 23, of 75 South Florida St., Buckhannon, was charged with delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. According to the complaint filed in Magistrate Court, Baxa is alleged to have sold what police believed to be heroin to a confidential informant in the parking lot of the Upshur County Board of Education office on Smithfield Street in Buckhannon. The building is within 1,000 feet of Buckhannon Academy Elementary School. His bond was set at $85,000.

Also arrested Friday were Joanie Hoge, 33, and Donald Hoge, 44, both of 51 Upper Drive, Buckhannon, on misdemeanor charges of being in possession of a controlled substance.

Coffman said he hoped Friday's arrests will put a dent in the drug culture in the county, but said his department will need the cooperation of the community to do so.

"I ask the citizens of Upshur County to come forward and lend us a hand," Coffman said. "They know what's going on around them. I would ask them to speak to me or relay the information to me. We will identify, investigate and arrest those people involved in the unlawful use and selling of drugs."

Agree! Sadly there are still many more. The majority of the people walking around look so far gone. I just don't understand how someone could do that to themselves.

Start in the Moose Parking Lot. They think because it is PRAVATE PROBERTY they can get by with it. Worse since Audreys diner is in the building. Just walk in the parking lot and you can smell where they go to their cars to burn the pot and other drugs 14hrs a day, ask to use their bathroom and look at all the white powder on the toilet paper holders in the stalls. Bingo bathrooms are the worse. By the way its not slander when its true. lol Can't wait till the drug test start coming.

Yeh Bob, rear them in DC- that's quite a place for some good nurturing. The problems with drugs in our society are off the charts throughout the U.S. If you think for one second that this issue is somehow unique to Buckhannon, WV, you're delusional. They've had busts in Weston, Clarksburg, Fairmont and Morgantown just in the past week that were bigger than this. So- go ahead and rip this nice, little community all you want. The grass is always greener-
