Police say over 91 grams of suspected pure heroin was seized in Berkeley Springs

They say this is the largest amount of drugs they've recovered in a single raid

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Four Berkeley Springs residents were arrested and over $25,000 worth of drugs were seized at two separate homes off Gravy Lane in Berkeley Springs.

Police say that this is the largest amount of drugs they've recovered in a single raid.

"The amount of drugs and currency that came out of that house was bar-none the largest that I have ever seen, in my experience,” said Cpl. for the State Police, Berkeley Springs Detachment, Sam Smith.

Twenty-nine-year-old Robert Harvey, 55-year-old Roger Harvey, 22-year-old Samantha Waugh and 32-year-old Brian McBee were all charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

"The largest concentration of criminal activity is in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia more-so than the rest of the state of West Virginia,” said Sheriff of the Morgan County Sheriff Department, K.C. Bohrer.

According to police, over 91 grams of suspected pure heroin, marijuana, pills and drug paraphernalia were taken from the residence.

"We know what the drug market is. We know what's being sold. We track the amounts being bought, purchases being bought,” said Bohrer.

Officers with the Morgan County Sheriff's Department said the arrests come after a two-month investigation.

"We exchange information on a daily basis, which leads to more arrests...search warrants, drug busts,” said chief for the Town of Bath, Berkeley Springs Police, Timothy Johnson.

Along with the drugs they secured, officers also found $22,000 worth of cash.

They say that the arrests would not have been able to take place without the partnership of all three forces.
