Two Detroit men were arrested last night around 10:00pm after a month long investigation by the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office STOP Team. The Kanawha Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team executed dual search warrants on the suspects’ apartments in the Big Eagle Apartment Complex in Jefferson. STOP Team members seized a large amount of cash from both apartments as well as a loaded pistol and approximately one (1) ounce of Heroin from one of the apartments.
Keival L. Kelley age 29 of Detroit, MI was charged with Possession of Heroin with Intent to Deliver. Steven Walker age 38 of Detroit, MI was charged with Possession of Heroin with Intent to Deliver. A loaded pistol and cache of ammunition was found in Walker’s apartment. Investigating Officer Cpl. F.E. Flowers is collaborating with the United States Attorney’s Office regarding potential federal charges against Walker, due to prior felony convictions.
Both suspects were placed in the SCRJ on a $25,000 Full Surety Bond.
Heroin made a ferocious entrance in Kanawha County a couple of years or so ago precipitating epidemic use and consequently multiple and regular fatal overdosing has been the result.
