Three arrested after $100k worth of marijuana found during bust on …

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — Nearly $100,000 worth of marijuana was found Thursday after a traffic stop in Huntington.

Duke Geary, 33, of Kenova, is charged with possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy and transporting a controlled substance into the state.

According to the criminal complaint, a West Virginia State Police trooper pulled over a vehicle in the area of 7th Avenue and 8th Street after he noticed a car had a defective brake light.

Two women, Ashley Bryan and Ciana Lee, were inside the car and said they had just returned from Washington.

Troopers say they believe the pair flew to Washington state earlier in the week and then drove back to Huntington.

When the trooper asked permission to search the vehicle, both women declined.

A K-9 was then brought out who smelled the presence of imprinted odors.

Troopers found two suitcases with 34 vacuum sealed bags containing a green leafy substance.

WVSP says the substance has a street value of $100,000.

“You know, they went out and got that much, you know they had plans for it, probably half of it was probably already sold or, you know, promised out anyway,” Sgt. Randy Charlton told WSAZ.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators determined the suitcases were meant to be delivered to Geary.

Geary was found at a hotel in Cabell County. He refused to cooperate, but admitted to knowing the two women.

Troopers say it’s just a coincidence that the bust happened on 4/20.

“That’s just as ironic as can be and that’s all it is,” Sgt. Charlton said. “To get that much marijuana on the marijuana smoking day … it’s just as ironic as can be.”

Lee, 21, of South Charleston and Bryan, 21, of Cross Lanes were both charged with transporting a controlled substance into the state.

Geary was taken to Western Regional Jail; his bond is set at $300,000.

Lee and Bryan have both posted a $100,000 bond.
