On June 27th 2008 at 7: 50 PM Martinsburg Police officer Derek English encountered an individual in the area of the 300 block of Raleigh Street who was acting in a suspicious manner by continually walking up and down the same area of the street. This individual was also known to the officer to have been previously involved in drug trafficking offenses.
During his initial contact with this subject and investigation the subject was reportedly acting in a nervous manner and was attempting to stuff something down the back of his pants when approached by Ptlm. English. During the investigation the suspect refused to obey commands after he gave Ptlm. English consent to perform a pat down search of his person. After failing to keep his hands on the police vehicle he was arrested for obstructing an officer and brought to the Martinsburg Police Department.
Located after the arrest was 3.5 grams of crack cocaine on the suspect along with $85.00 in currency.
The suspect was then arrested on the charge of Possession With Intent To Deliver a Controlled Substance (Crack cocaine). He was processed at the Martinsburg Police Department.
He was later transported to the Eastern Regional Jail to await arraignment by a State Magistrate later in the evening.
Arrested: Christian Kanzler DOB 10 23 83 and listing an address of 6485 Tuscarora Pike
