Over the weekend, The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department’s Street Crimes and Drug Unit (SCAD) along with their K-9 Unit arrested three people from Pennsylvania for distributing heroin, according to a report by WVAlways.com.

These arrests, made on Saturday, stemmed from an undercover operation in which an operative had made multiple controlled purchases of heroin from Chad J. Neal “C.J.”, Jalisa L. Hawkins, and Russel D. Spence “Ricky” in the Clarksburg and Bridgeport areas.

After selling heroin to an undercover operative, SCAD Deputies along with the Sheriff’s Department’s K-9 Officer Sgt. John Laulis, arrested the three suspects who were in their rental car parked in the lot of Smoke Time Sam’s in the Stealey area of Clarksburg.

After the arrests, a K-9 dog checked the rental car for illegal narcotics. After getting a positive alert for drugs, SCAD deputies obtained a search warrant for the rental car.

As a result of the execution of the search warrant, SCAD Deputies located 81 stamps of heroin, approximately $2,800 in cash, and numerous cell phones inside the trio’s rental car.
