A St. Albans woman was arrested on a drug charge after police said they found methamphetamine in her bedroom.
Laura Ellen Thayer, 39, was charged with possession with intent to deliver after a St. Albans Police Department special enforcement unit served a search warrant Monday at her residence at 2233 Grant Ave. in St. Albans, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
When officers arrived, they search the residence and recovered about 21 clear plastic baggies containing an off-white powder believed to be methamphetamine from Thayer’s bedroom area, the complaint said.
