MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Berkeley County Sheriff Nathan Harmon says a traffic stop was a perfect example of good police work and how drugs are involved in other crimes.
In a social media post Thursday, the sheriff says a traffic stop on I-81 for a speeding violation turned into a vehicle pursuit.
In the car were four young women he said were victims of a sex trafficking ring. As a result of the stop, Harmon says the women were given ‘safe haven these criminals.’
He says members of the ACE team also confiscated 174 oxycontin pills, 52 morphine pills and meth during the stop.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our deputies,” Harmon says. “You saved lives today.”
