I-66 traffic stop turns into drug bust

By Joe Beck -- jbeck@nvdaily.com

A Warren County Sheriff's Deputy arrested a West Virginia man on a charge of driving under the influence of narcotics late Sunday night after he was found with drugs and drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop, according to the Sheriff Daniel McEathron.

Jeffrey Todd Turner, 46, of Petersburg, W.Va., was also charged with possession of controlled paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, McEathron said in a press release.

McEathron said Turner was arrested around 11:15 p.m. on Interstate 66. He said two deputies were involved in a traffic stop in the eastbound lane of I-66 when one of them noticed a vehicle that failed to yield the right-of-way or reduce speed when approaching an emergency vehicle with its emergency lights turned on. McEathron said the deputy, Steven Collins, stopped the vehicle, which Turner was driving.

Collins noticed Turner appeared to be nervous while speaking to him, according to McEathron. At that point, the deputy also noticed what he suspected to be drug paraphernalia, McEathron said.

Deputy Jennifer Laney and a drug-sniffing dog were called to the scene, McEathron said. The dog responded to the vehicle in a way that suggested it contained drugs and an ensuing search found drug paraphernalia, including several glass smoking devices and plastic bags containing suspected methamphetamines and other pills, McEathron said.

Turner was taken to the Warren County Jail where he was being held on $1,500 secured bond as of Monday afternoon, McEathron said.
