CHAPMANVILLE — A Chapmanville mother and her son have been arrested and charged with multiple offenses during a stolen ATV investigation.
While executing a search warrant on the property of Judy Kathelene Wilson, 48, of Chapmanville, West Virginia State Trooper J.K. Harris reportedly located three stolen ATVs, a stolen weapon and drugs.
Wilson’s son, Jimmy Ray Conley, 29, also a resident of the property, was arrested and charged with three counts of receiving stolen property and three counts of altering VIN numbers on ATVs.
Conley is accused of receiving and accepting possession of a stolen 2006 Honda 400 EX four wheeler on June 9. The ATV had been reported stolen from Mike Robinson and was located at Conley’s residence. Two additional ATVs were also located on the property, a Yamaha 660 Raptor and a Yamaha 450 YFZ. The vehicle identification numbers (VIN) had been altered on both Yamahas and investigation revealed that they also had been stolen.
During a search of the residence, a plastic bag containing smaller bags of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana was discovered in Wilson’s bedroom. Harris also discovered a Sig Sauer 9mm pistol that had been reported stolen in 2010 from a Logan County resident.
The criminal complaint states that during an interview with Wilson, the accused “admitted to possessing the aforementioned marijuana, pistol and to a conspiracy to deliver controlled substances from her residence.” It was further stated that Wilson allegedly conspired with her son, Jimmy Ray Conley, to distribute “Roxicodone, from their residence.”
Wilson was charged with possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy and receiving stolen property.
A second criminal complaint against Conley, added the charges of possession with intent to deliver and conspiracy charges. An investigation allegedly revealed that Conley traded Roxicodone in exchange for stolen ATVs.
Following Wilson’s transportation to South Western Regional Jail, a second criminal complaint was filed against her by Cpl. Donna Secreto of the West Virginia Regional Jail Authority charging Wilson of “aiding and abetting escapes and other offenses to adults in custody.” According to the complaint, Secreto was processing Wilson for “general population at which time I checked her clothing and no contraband was found. I was visually inspecting her vagina area, she was reluctant. I asked her if she had anything to give up several times. She (Wilson) replied ‘I don’t have anything’ then. Secreto states in the complaint that Wilson allegedly “removed from her vagina a vial, orange in color, inside of it contained 3 Oxycotin 40s and 8 Oxycodone 20s.”
Trooper Harris was notified of the discovery and additional charges of possession with intent to deliver was added against Wilson.
