Trooper makes arrest after stopping to helped stranded motorist

SUTTON, W.Va. — A Michigan man is being held in the Central Regional Jail after State Police say he provided several different names to a trooper who stopped to assist him along Interstate 79.

That man was stuck near Frametown Wednesday because of vehicle problems.

James Thomas Coleman, 22, from East Lansing, Mich., was charged with providing false information, obstructing an officer and forgery after allegedly giving conflicting information about his true identity.

It was later determined that Coleman was wanted in Charleston on a delivery of a controlled substance charge.

Troopers said they found $14,000 in a box in Coleman’s vehicle.
