CHAPMANVILLE - A man from Chapmanville has been charged with felony armed robbery, brandishing of a deadly weapon and assault.
On Dec. 13, Chief D.A. Browning and Sgt. D.T. Bryant of the Chapmanville Police Department responded to an apartment on Tomblin Drive for an assault complaint. They spoke with a victim who said Chad Davis, 41, was invited into the apartment.
According to a criminal complaint from Logan County Magistrate Court, Davis became angry with the victim when he refused to give Davis a suboxone. Davis reportedly pulled out a knife and told the victim that they were "going to have problems if he didn't give him a suboxone."
The victim then said Davis began poking at him with the knife until he was able to get into his bedroom. The victim's mother then called 911 and Davis reportedly turned and told her that she better not be calling the police. Davis then turned his attention back to the victim and charged at him again with the knife still in his hand.
Davis was arrested and arraigned on a $50,000 10 percent cash or surety bond. He was also charged with misdemeanor petit larceny for an incident that occurred in an apartment on Tomblin Drive on Dec. 8, in which he stole a mobile phone from a female victim.
POSSESSION AND PUBLIC INTOXICATION: A man was arrested and given several charges after he was found intoxicated inside a grocery store.
Luther D. Dalton, 53, of Chapmanville, is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, public intoxication, disorderly conduct and second-offense driving revoked for DUI.
It happened Dec. 15 when Officer C.L. Sammons of the CPD received a call about an intoxicated man inside the Towne N' Country Foodland grocery store. When Sammons arrived, he reportedly saw Dalton walking down an aisle "unsteady and off balance" and said he "appeared to be highly intoxicated."
Upon investigation, Sammons discovered that Dalton had driven to the store, and upon a DMV inquiry, it was found that Dalton's license was revoked for a DUI three years prior. Dalton was also reportedly arrested Sept. 28 for driving while revoked for DUI.
Dalton was arrested without incident and searched. Located on his person was a hypodermic syringe and a green pill bottle with 23 pills identified as diazepam, a Schedule 4 controlled substance.
Dalton was arraigned on a $10,000 bond, which he has since posted.

Police say Eugene A. Summerville, 40, of Columbus, was located by himself in a bedroom inside the residence. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and arraigned on a $10,000 bond, which he has since posted.
