BUCKHANNON — A young Buckhannon man was arrested on an array of drug charges again Wednesday, following a New Year’s Eve raid at his home earlier this year. Robert Thomas Quici, age 21, was arrested on the felony offenses of possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession with intent to deliver THC oils, conspiracy to commit possession with intent to deliver marijuana, and conspiracy to commit possession with intent to deliver THC oils.
According to the criminal complaint, a search warrant was executed at Quici’s residence by Deputies of the Upshur County Sheriff’s Office. During the search inside the property, deputies found a baggie of suspected marijuana, a digital scale, suspected THC oils wrapped in two pieces of freezer paper, and a box of surveillance equipment. Outside the property, a purple backpack was found hidden in a trash can containing a zip-lock bag with suspected marijuana, a digital scale, 13 THC vape cartridges, and suspected THC oil wrapped in five pieces of wax paper, along with three pieces of notebook paper indicating sales of “Weed, Carts, Dabs, and Coke” with prices listed, the report stated.
There were also numerous Snapchat messages found between Quici and his brothers, further indicating their conspiracy to deliver a variety of controlled substances.
Quici was arrested and taken to Tygart Valley Regional Jail March 4 on a warrant issued February 27. If found guilty, Quici could face penalties such as imprisonment for not less than one year, nor more than five years and/or fined not more than $15,000, or both, for each offense of possession with intent to deliver marijuana and THC oils. He also faces confinement in the state penitentiary for not less than one year, nor more than five years, or a fine of not more than $10,000, or both, for each charge of conspiracy. Magistrate Kay Hurst set bond in the amount of $100,000 cash only plus $48 LET fees.
