A man who was arrested on drug charges in Gilmer County in February is now facing charges in Upshur county.
29 year-old James Ware was pulled over Thursday night for speeding on Route 20. Police said they found meth and marijuana during the traffic stop. 
Upshur County Sheriff, David Coffman, said his department is focused on stopping the growing drug problems in the area.
"I'm putting all our resources toward our drug investigations. We have ongoing investigations at this time, and hopefully in the future we'll be making several arrests, but myself, as sheriff, I'm not going to tolerate it," said Sheriff Coffman.
Ware is charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine lab along with other drug related charges.

Sheriff Coffman is doing a great job! Just like Sheriff Miller before him. Upshur county will NOT tolerate criminals; especially drug traffickers in our county. They've been warned but too stupid to think they can get caught. NOT a county to come into if you're thinking of bringing your drugs with you. Keep up the great work. There's still a lot more to do and a lot more to arrest here, but we're making progress.
