Man facing drug charges in Upshur

BUCKHANNON — A man who was reported to be unconscious in a car at Sheetz has been arrested for three felonies after the Buckhannon Police Department allegedly found meth, marijuana and a gun in the vehicle.

Robert Waugh, 22, of Weston, was arrested for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, three counts, felonies, by Patrolman Angel McCauley, according to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s office.

McCauley responded to the call along with Sgt. Tom Posey. Waugh allegedly admitted to having a “weed bowl” in the car and was asked to step out of the vehicle to be examined by EMS.

“I searched the vehicle and found a bowl with what he stated was weed in it,” McCauley wrote in the criminal complaint. “I also found a small white baggie in the center console with the bowl.”

Further searching revealed a black box underneath the driver’s seat that contained two baggies of a green, leafy substance, two baggies of a crystal-like substance, scale, several small baggies and a ledger.

The crystal-like substance tested positive for methamphetamine and totaled 2.66 grams and Waugh allegedly admitted the other baggies contained marijuana which weighed 1.008 grams. Another baggy also held five Subutex pills. Posey also removed a gun from the vehicle, according to the criminal complaint.

Magistrate Kay Hurst set bond at $60,000 cash or surety.

Each count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance carries imprisonment of one year to 15 years and/or fined not more than $25,000.
