Cora , Logan County , West Virginia
The Logan County Sheriff’s Department said a report from a woman who said her husband had been shot turned out to be unfounded and ended up with her husband being arrested on a drug charge.
Kenneth Robinette, 53, of Baisden was arrested Sunday on a possession with the intent to deliver crack cocaine charge, according to a news release from the department.
The release said Robinette’s wife, Geena, told deputies her husband had been shot in Cora, in the Logan Heights area. She said she had heard a gunshot at a home and ran to the Rich Old Gas Station to call 911.
Deputies went to the house and found Kenneth Robinette and another man standing in the yard, the release said. They quickly determined that the story about the shooting was not true, and they found that Robinette had more than $500 in cash and a prescription bottle that had several crack cocaine rocks, deputies said.
