WESTON — A major drug bust in Lewis County resulted in the arrest of 13 people Friday, according to Sheriff Adam Gissy.
“We have 12 in custody and one is to be processed in Randolph County,” Gissy said Friday morning. “They are all felony charges of delivery and/or conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.”
The sheriff said he would continue to investigate unlawful drug activity in an effort to have a safer community.
“It is another blow to those delivering narcotics. However, we are not going to stop by any means,” he said.
Lewis County Magistrates Roger D. Clem Jr. and Michael R. Gissy issued the warrants that allegedly involved marijuana, synthetic marijuana, acid, hydrocodone, heroin, clonazepam and oxycodone. Arraignments were held Friday.
Those unable to post bond were transported to the Central Regional Jail.
The defendants and charges are as follows:
n Richard Gary Smith III, 19, Jane Lew, conspiracy; delivery of a controlled substance.
n Daniel Marcus Pascasio, 18, Weston, delivery of a controlled substance.
n Tamara Lynn Cain, 25, Weston, delivery of a Schedule III narcotic.
n Sarah Jones, 24, Weston, two counts, delivery of Schedule I narcotic.
n Travis Caddell, 20, Orlando, two counts, delivery of a Schedule III and Schedule IV narcotic.
n Anthony Eugene Posey, 29, Jane Lew, delivery of a Schedule II narcotic.

n Eric Charles Henry, 29, Weston, delivery of a Schedule III narcotic.
There was no information available on the defendant being processed in Randolph County.
In Harrison County on Friday, Magistrate Warren E. “Gizzy” Davis arraigned Timothy Eliakim Boram, 29, of Nutter Fort, on charges of breaking and entering and grand larceny.
Davis set bond at $25,000 per charge. Boram was unable to post bond and was remanded to the North Central Regional Jail.
Boram allegedly broke the lock at Fluid Delivery Solutions LLC in Stonewood and entered the business, according to a criminal complaint by Stonewood Patrolman Z.N. Kesling.
Boram then allegedly left the business and entered a business truck parked outside and drove it away, Kesling said. The defendant also stole numerous items from the truck that were valued at $1,342, the officer alleged.
The items were a mechanical fuel meter, a fuel pump, leaded nozzle, fuel line, steel transfer tank, tool box and 36 gallons of diesel fuel, Kesling alleged. They were stored on Chub Run Road, Mount Clare, where officers recovered the items, Kesling said.
Boram allegedly admitted he was driving the stolen truck, according to the complaint.
