A South Charleston man is facing charges after a drug raid overnight.
David Lee Gump, 38, of South Charleston was arrested for felony drug possession late Wednesday evening. Police served a search warrant at his home along Village Drive in South Charleston.
Officers said they discovered 22 grams of heroin in individually wrapped baggies inside his home. The drug was hidden in a bingo box in an upstairs bedroom, according to court documents.
