On March 22, 2017 the Beckley Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force served a search warrant at Bradford Drive in the Crab Orchard area of Raleigh County. The execution of the search warrant resulted in the seizure of 19.48 pounds of marijuana worth approximately $80,000.00, 51 canisters of THC oil, $6000.00 in cash and 13 guns. The investigation into this case was in connection to a traffic stop in Seaward County Nebraska where a deputy stopped a car and discovered the driver to be in possession of $57,000.00. After questioning the driver it was discovered the cash was from a marijuana sale here in Raleigh County. Homeland Security contacted the WV State Police at which time the Task Force became involved. Benjamin Villenave was arrested for being in possession of the drugs. He was arraigned before a Raleigh County Magistrate.
