LOGAN, W.Va. — A Chapmanville women was recently arrested for drug possession after she reportedly called law enforcement to report a trespasser.

Trooper First Class C.S. Maynard reports he responded to the call for a trespasser at Holly Avenue in Aracoma.

The caller, Amer Sheree Bias, 36, of Chapmanville, reportedly alleged her boyfriend had been smoking crack with a women in the laundry room and the women was still hiding inside of the laundry room at the apartment complex.

Upon his arrival, Maynard reports Bias was pacing back and forth and mumbling.

When Maynard asked Bias if she had used any drugs, Bias allegedly responded she had used suboxone and had not slept in four days.

Bias reportedly continued to state the trespasser was locked inside of the laundry room.

The criminal complaint filed by Maynard states, “…Maynard was unable to verify the complaint and no one was heard from within the said room.”

Maynard reports he asked Bias if she was in possession of any narcotics and Bias allegedly produced a bag containing methamphetamine.

Bias allegedly stated she had been using methamphetamine over the last two days.

Upon reviewing the contents of the bag, Maynard reports he found five individually wrapped bags of methamphetamine and sixth larger bag of methamphetamine.

Field tests conducted on the drugs reportedly confirmed they were methamphetamine.

Bias was arrested and charged with public intoxication, possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of suboxone.

Bias’ bond was set to $5,000.
