Two charged with drug possession

PARKERSBURG — Two Parkersburg residents were arrested over the weekend and charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver.

One of the two also was charged with a prohibited person with a firearm after he was previously charged with multiple felonies.

According to a criminal complaint in Wood County Magistrate Court, Airrion Antwoin Smith, 46, 1614 Pearcy Ave., Parkersburg, and Robin M. Mowrey, 45 of the same address, had their residence searched and two handguns were found along with two bags of methamphetamine.

Digital scales and a cutting tool also were found in the residence, the complaint said.

Smith was previously charged with larceny of a firearm in 2007, according to the complaint.

Earlier this month, law enforcement went to the residence after complaints were received of several people going in and out of the home, the complaint said.

Those who reported the activity also said there were children living in the residence with the suspicious activity.

Officers said the residence was unsanitary and the children were living in poor conditions and in the same room as syringes and foil, the complaint said.

A backpack containing a firearm also was found at the residence and after conducting a search history on Smith, he was found to have many previous felony charges including an attempted common law robbery through the Fayetteville Police Department, the complaint said.

Smith was released on a $150,000 surety bond and Mowrey was released on a $100,000 surety bond.
