Jail-drugs suspect caught

Levi Doman of Keyser is in Martinsburg’s Eastern Regional Jail this morning after a year on the lam over drug charges that stretch into Hampshire County.

Doman, 29, was apprehended by bounty hunters, the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office confirmed this week, and delivered to the jail around midday Tuesday.

Federal authorities indicted Doman last October as part of a ring of 11 people accused of distributing meth across the Potomac Highlands.

In May 2018 he was indicted by a Hampshire County grand jury as part of a scheme to bring drugs into the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail.

Turf talk: The school board once again will take up the proposal to put artificial turf and a rubberized track at Rannells Field at its Monday night meeting. The board will consider authorizing letting a bid once the finance campaign hits 1000 units. It is currently at 810.
