April 10, 2014: STOP Team Arrests Two in Chesapeake

On April 10, 2014 the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office STOP team executed a search warrant on the residence of Arthur Ray Elkins, age 49 of 124th street, Chesapeake.  Deputies had been investigating a tip that Arthur Elkins was selling illegal drugs from this residence.  

After several weeks of investigation, search warrants were obtained and executed.  Prior to executing the search warrant and while conducting surveillance on the residence Arthur Ray Elkins Jr. (23 years old) was observed leaving the residence in a vehicle.  He was stopped a short distance from the residence.  He had approximately 1 ounce of marijuana packaged for sale.  

A search of the residence turned up an additional 1.5 pounds of marijuana.  Arthur Ray Elkins was arrested and charged with 2 counts of possession with intent to deliver marijuana.  Arthur Ray Elkins Jr was charged with 1 count of possession with intent to deliver Marijuana.  

As is always the case in criminal matters, the charges against Arthur Elkins, Sr., and Arthur Elkins, Jr. are merely accusations.  Each is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
