Parkersburg Police say Kevin Byrd, 33, of Cairo, Ritchie County, had nearly 5 grams of suspected fentanyl, 3.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine and 9 suspected MDMA pills hidden in his underwear when he was taken to police headquarters after his arrest.

Police pulled him over on Park Avenue for a traffic violation and used a k-9 to search his car.

That search turned up drug paraphernalia and more than $720 in cash.

He’s charged with three counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.

Byrd was arraigned Monday night in Wood County Magistrate Court.

He remains in the North Central Regional Jail on a $300,000 bond.
