CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Texas man was in jail Wednesday after authorities allegedly found drugs in his hotel room in Malden.
Cpl. Brian Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department said deputies went to the Budget Host Inn in Malden on Tuesday after getting a tip that people from Texas were staying in local motels to distribute crystal meth.
Deputies arrested Steve E. Gonzales, 25, of Texas and charged him with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. Humphreys said deputies allegedly found a large amount of crystal meth with an estimated value of $25,000 and several hundred dollars in cash in Gonzales' room.
Gonzales was in the South Central Regional Jail on Wednesday with bail set at $50,000.
