Elkins woman arrested on methamphetamine charge

ELKINS – An Elkins woman is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $50,000 cash bond after being arrested on drug charges, police said.

Stephanie Dawn Lyons, 35, was arrested Friday for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine after West Virginia State Police officials met with a confidential informant Nov. 8, who advised them Lyons “was in possession of methamphetamine,” according to the criminal complaint.

The informant claimed to have “observed methamphetamine lying around” the premises of Lyons’ residence, the complaint states.

After a search warrant was issued, State Police officers seized “approximately 4 (sic) grams of methamphetamine, scales, numerous baggies for packaging, and a ledger depicting sales of illegal drugs… along with numerous paraphernalia,” according to the criminal complaint.

Police also searched two other individuals on the premises, finding “a small plastic bag also containing methamphetamine” on one and “needles, coffee filters with white residue and metal spoons with white residue,” the complaint reads. The white powder was identified as Suboxin, which the individual told police she used, according to the complaint.
