According to the criminal complaint, on Dec. 20, 2016, Preston County Sheriff T.E. Mitter was monitoring traffic on W.Va. Route 26 at Raccoon Valley Road when he observed a white Subaru Outback pass heading north with an expired inspection sticker and a young child in the back seat leaning up to the front seat.
Upon stopping the Subaru, Mitter contacted the driver and his passenger Shelly Bosley. In the back seat was a three-year-old child who, according to the complaint, was neither in a child seat nor a seat belt.
Deputy First Class C. Cline arrived on the scene and informed Mitter that Shelly Bosley and her husband, Michael Bosley, were “again believed to be manufacturing methamphetamine.”
Shelly Bosley has a current methamphetamine charge and “has been alleged to be still involved with methamphetamine.”
“Shelly Bosley then advised Deputy Cline that she had a ‘tooter’ in her purse,” the complaint continued. “Cline knows this to be slang for a snort straw commonly used for snorting methamphetamine.”
Cline began to search the vehicle he immediately observed a plastic ziplock bag containing coffee filters in Shelly Bosley’s purse.
Cline asked Shelly Bosley where there were coffee filters in the her purse and she stated, “she didn’t know why they were there.” Upon continuing the search, Cline located another pouch that contained multiple plastic containers with suspect methamphetamine, and more filters which contained a white powder substance.
The complaint reads, “Deputy Cline asked Shelly Bosley what the powder was and she stated that she did not know.”
Shelly Ann Bosley, 38, is in Tygart Valley Regional Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
