A man was arrested after police said he tried to hide drugs during a traffic stop.
Chapmanville officers said they pulled over the driver of a Honda Accord on U.S. Route 119 around 6 p.m. Friday for speeding.
The officer said that the driver, Juan Sanchez, 26, and his female passenger, said they were on their way home from visiting family in Preston County. The officer said the two seemed suspicious and their stories did not match up.
The officer said he got permission from Sanchez to search the vehicle and a canine officer found a package containing 42 grams of crack cocaine under the front passenger seat.
Sanchez is charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. He was taken to the Southwestern Regional Jail.
