CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. — A report of a man going through abandoned apartments led police to a drug arrest last week.

When Chapmanville Police caught up with a man matching the description of the person rummaging through the apartments, they found him with three containers holding a combined 13 grams of a crystal-like substance. That substance later tested positive for fentanyl.

Billy Joe Jeffrey, 39, was arrested and charged with possession of fentanyl and possession with intent to deliver. He is being held in the Southwestern Regional Jail in Holden.
