OMAR – A traffic stop made by the West Virginia State Police was where Diana Michelle Hairston, 43, of Omar began to spin a web of lies and deception that has her facing multiple charges.
The criminal complaint says that when officers pulled over the vehicle driven by Hairson, she could not produce an operator’s license. She gave the officer her sister’s name and other information belonging to her sister. The officer requested a driver’s query and was advised the accused’s license was revoked for unpaid citations and mandatory insurance effective in June 1992.
Charges for this offense were failure to produce operator’s license, driving revoked non-DUI, expired registration, obstructing and false information to DPS.
Hairston was arrested and taken to the Southwestern Regional Jail. During the booking process, a search of Hairston revealed the defendant was concealing a small gray pipe, wrapped with electrical tape and used for smoking crack cocaine in the defendant’s underwear. Inside the pipe was a residue believed to be crack cocaine, a Schedule II Controlled Substance.
Hairston picked up an additional charge of transporting a controlled substance into jail. Hairston’s bond was set at $15,000.
