CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA  — United States Attorney  William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that an investigation by the Greater Harrison Drug & Violent Crime Task Force has led to searches of a Stonewood residence and a Bridgeport motel and the arrest of a former Stonewood, West Virginia, resident.
In February of 2013, the residence in Stonewood was searched, pursuant to a Federal search, and officers recovered heroin and money.
On October 11, 2013, after distributing heroin to a confidential informant, Matthew Vanhorn, age 27, was arrested.  Pursuant to the arrest, Room 435 at the Wingate Hotel in Bridgeport, where Vanhorn had been residing since July of 2013, was searched. During the search of the hotel room, officers recovered $4,121 in US currency, multiple bundles of heroin totaling approximately 90 grams, a Nokia cellphone, two bottles of Advil containing empty heroin bags, two pocket books containing various paraphernalia, multiple empty bags of heroin, Samsung cell phone, LG cellphone, I-pad and debit cards.  During the execution of the search warrant at the motel, two children were present and in close proximity to empty heroin baggies and packaged heroin.  
Vanhorn appeared before Magistrate Judge John S. Kaull on October 18, 2013, and was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
