Carl D. Cisco, of Beech Creek, was arrested Wednesday evening after police executed search warrants at his residence.
Officers reported confiscating four-and-a-half pounds of marijuana, in addition to 19 firearms, four of which were stolen.
Cisco was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance and conspiracy. He was arraigned in Mingo County Magistrate Court and bond was set at $25,000.
“These arrests would not have been possible without the cooperation of Mingo County’s Prosecuting Attorney Michael Sparks and Circuit Court Judge Michael Thornsbury who came out on a holiday to sign the search warrants,” said Rockel. “This proves that they have a proactive stance against drugs in Mingo County.”
Trooper B.R. Moore and Williamson Police Lt. C.D. Rockel are the lead investigators on the case and said that they anticipate additional arrests.
West Virginia State Police Sgt. Brown, Cpl. Harper, and troopers D. Moore and Boggs assisted in the arrest.
