One West Virginia woman’s warning sign on her front door led police to a insane discovery in the city of Oak Hill.
The Fayette County Sherriff’s Department discovered the sign after responding to a joyriding complaint around 10 a..m., Thursday, WCHS reported.
The sign reads: “Due to snitches everyone entering my home is subject to being searched. All cellphones and drinks will be left outside!! (If you’re not a snitch, it won’t offend you if I search you!!)”
Facebook users commented on the sign and said, “That’s a special kind of stupid,” and “You can’t just fix stupid but you can arrest it! LOL.”
Police found drugs inside the residence, and are believed to have been sold there. They found substances inside the home, including methamphetamine and heroin.
The Oak Hill homeowner April Lynn Lavender, 38, and Kristie Weis, 22, were arrested.
Lavender was charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver while Weis was charged with joyriding.
“While drug investigations often require a great deal of time and effort, sometimes the criminals make our job pretty easy,” Sheriff Kessler said according to Fayette County Sheriff’s Facebook post. “If someone posts a sign on their front door about searching ‘snitches,’ it’s a pretty safe bet that there are illegal drugs being sold out of that location.”
Lavender is in Southern Regional Jail on $10,000 bond along with Weis who is on $1,500 bond.
