W.Va. bath salts suspect remains a fugitive
CLARKSBURG, W.Va. -- The hunt for a Clarksburg man charged with selling illegal bath salts continues, and authorities say the public can help.
Anyone with information about 57-year-old John Skruck should call the U.S. Marshals Service at 304-623-0486.
Skruck, a former Texas resident, is white, 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, with long, gray-brown hair and a beard.
Prosecutors say Skruck failed to return Monday from an approved out-of-town trip. A warrant was issued for his arrest Tuesday, the day his federal trial on drug charges was set to begin.
U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley says the trial will continue this week if Skruck is captured by Wednesday afternoon. If not, she'll reschedule for early September.
Skruck ran the Hot Stuff Cool Things stores in Buckhannon and Clarksburg before authorities raided them last April.
