On Wednesday, Ritchie County Sheriff’s Department deputies pulled over a white pickup truck on Route 50 in Ritchie County that was missing a rear bumper and displaying an improper license plate, according to a criminal complaint.

When deputies made contact with the driver, Sunrak Spencer, 38, of Auburn, “they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” deputies said.

In the conversation with Spencer, he stated that he “had a marijuana pipe in the vehicle” but that he “had a marijuana medical record,” according to the complaint.

At that time, deputies searched Spencer’s truck and found a black box containing $217 in U.S. currency, two bags of methamphetamine, as well as a green cylinder containing more methamphetamine, deputies said.

The total weight of the methamphetamine was 20.45 grams, according to the report.

Spencer was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. He is being held in the North Central Regional Jail on $15,000 bond.
