Two Fayette County men are in jail following the execution of a search warrant in North Page, according to Fayette County Sheriff Mike Fridley.
After a lengthy investigation, the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force executed a search warrant on a residence at 10124 Deepwater Mountain Road in North Page. During the execution of the warrant, one subject fled from the home and was eventually captured by officers. The search of the location yielded a quantity of methamphetamines, heroin and marijuana, along with packaging materials and cash.
According to a press release, Kenneth Taylor, 39, of North Page, was charged with four felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance and two counts of possession with intent to deliver narcotics. He was unable to post the $150,000 bond set by the Fayette County Magistrate's Office and was remanded to the Southern Regional Jail.
The subject who fled the scene, Donald Walker of Robson, was charged with fleeing an officer, obstructing a police officer and battery on law enforcement personnel. Walker also had an active family court warrant filed by the Bureau of Child Support Enforcement, and he was remanded to the Southern Regional Jail until his appearance before a family court judge.
