A Keyser man, who was also a Alderson Broaddus University student, and a Calhoun County man were arrested in Taylor County Wednesday night after deputies conducted a traffic stop and found a variety of drugs according to published reports
 Michael Mallow, 21, of Keyser, and Nathan Cosgrove, 22, of Chloe in Calhoun County, were each charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
According to the Taylor County Sheriff's Department, a deputy was monitoring traffic when Mallow sped through a 35 mile per hour zone at 54 miles per hour.
The deputy then stopped Mallow and Cosgrove and at that time noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. When the deputy asked if there was any marijuana in the vehicle, both men denied that it was theirs.
After K9  responded to the scene, the men then turned over 42.5 grams of marijuana, a gram of methamphetamine, three Adderall tablets, eight Xanax tablets, scales and packaging materials.
According to published reports, Cosgrove also told the deputy that he had a AR-15 gun in the vehicle, which was located along with $6,207 in cash.
The decision was made to impound the vehicle, and at that time reportedly  Mallow spoke of his concerns about his handgun in the car. The deputy checked and located the handgun after being given consent to search the car by Mallow. At that time the deputy also found 36 Xanax tablets, 9.7 grams of marijuana, a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun and $2,500.
Both men are currently in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail, in lieu of $150,000 bond each.
According to a statement issued by Alderson Broaddus University: “Officials have been contacted by the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office regarding an incident that occurred Wednesday evening. I can confirm that Michael Mallow is a current student and has been placed on interim suspension and is not allowed on campus property.
