Three people were arrested on drug charges in Logan County, WV.

According to a news release issued by the Logan County Sheriff's Department, Lisa Pauline Chippent, 39, of Holden, WV, Tyrone Perkins, 49, and Christian Perkins, 24, both of Dunbar, WV, were arrested Wednesday, April 2.

The news release says Logan County Sheriff's deputies went to Chippent's residence in the area of Fairlawn Street in Holden, in reference to a report of a possible illegal burn pile.

The deputies were met by a woman at the door of the house who told them that Chippent was not at home, and when the deputies asked her if there was anyone else there they could speak to about the possible burn pile, she told them she did not know if there was anyone else there.

According to the news release, the deputies then heard a noise, at which point they noticed the woman looked nervous, and went to investigate the noise. The deputies found both Tyrone and Christian Perkins, who are both father and son, and they also found a clear bag of what appeared to be cocaine base in the adjacent bedroom. They told the deputies that Chippent was hiding in the attic of the residence.

The news release says that the Logan deputies contacted deputies with the U.S. 119 Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, in which a search warrant was obtained to search the residence. When police searched the residence, they found that the clear bag contained three other bags, which contained 18 grams of crack cocaine, as well as eight round-shaped pills, identified as Clonazepam, a controlled substance.

According to the news release, police had to use force to remove Chippent from her attic.

All three are being held in the Southwestern Regional Jail on a $50,000 bond.

According to Sheriff Porter of the Logan County Sheriff's Department, "Just reporting this possible illegal burn pile lead deputies to these drug arrests. By our Logan County citizens getting involved in what is going in their community is a great help to the Sheriff's Department on cracking down on drug violations as well as other crimes."
