When deputies made contact with the vehicle’s driver, identified as Martin Queen, 59, of Clarksburg, they informed him that they “had received information that Queen had controlled substances concealed in a motor home located in Michael’s parking lot,” deputies said.

At that point, deputies asked Queen for consent for a search of his person, vehicle and motor home, to which “Queen did provide consent for all” and stated that “he did possess a firearm on his right hip”; however, Queen also told deputies that he is a convicted felon “and not legal to possess firearms,” according to the complaint.

Queen also told deputies that “he did have illegal substances inside the motor home,” at which point a search was performed, during which time deputies located the firearm and a wax stamp in Queen’s pocket; a search of the mobile home resulted in 125 wax stamps of presumed heroin/fentanyl, deputies said.

A further search resulted in deputies locating presumed methamphetamine, a container with presumed cocaine and another firearm, and during a search of Queen’s residence, deputies located 150 wax stamps, 91 rounds of miscellaneous ammunition, a set of digital scales, a “small amount” of marijuana, an AR15 rifle with seven magazines of ammunition, five loaded Springfield 9mm magazines, a “revolver style” pistol, a 12-gauge pistol and a bag of presumed methamphetamine, according to the complaint.

Queen has been charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.
