The US 119 Drug Task Force and officers of the Logan detachment of the West Virginia State Police made several arrests on August 4-7 pertaining to a drug ring located in Logan County. Those accused are Nevada Davis, 40, of Robinette, Richard Edward Spears Jr., 40, of Lyburn and Linda Kay Spears, 61, also of Lyburn.

Davis is charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, conspiracy and two charges of delivery of a controlled substance. Richard has two charges of delivery of a controlled substance. Linda is charges with conspiracy and eight charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

On August 4, the Drug Task Force and WVSP executed a search warrant at the residence of Nevada Davis. The officers reportedly seized a large amount of Oxycodone, marijuana and U.S. currency. Davis, along with co-conspirator Linda Spears, allegedly possessed the aforementioned drugs with intent to sell.

During the investigation, Linda advised the officers that she had intended to sell the drugs.

Davis is also accused of delivering pills believed to be Roxicodone to a cooperating individual in exchange for previously recorded U.S. currency on or around July 28. Roxicodone is a schedule II controlled narcotic substance.

Richard Spears is accused of conspiring with Davis to deliver the Roxicodone to a cooperating individual. They did allegedly sell the pill in exchange for U.S. currency that was being monitored.

Also on August 4, believed to be during the search warrant taking place at Davis’ house, the Task Force allegedly observed Joseph Allen Fox, 41, of Man, exiting a vehicle and walking towards the house where the search warrant was being executed. Upon speaking to Fox, one officer conducted an “officer safety pat down” and says he felt a cylinder-like object in Fox’s pants pocket. While investigating, the officer discovered an unmarked bottle containing 40 green pills inscribed “187.” The pills were believed to be 15 mg Roxicodone.

Davis’ bail is set for $25,000; Linda Spears’ bail is set for $50,000, Richard Spears’ bail is set at $10,000 and Fox’s bail is set for $5,000.
