KEYSER - Three persons were charged in connection with three separate incidents which kept West Virginia State Police busy over the weekend.
According to the State Police, the arrests were made as a result of traffic enforcement between calls for service.
On Friday, March 15, Roger Custer, 29,  of Westernport, Donna Kesner, 59,  of Keyser, were both charged following traffic stops in Keyser, along US Route 220. 
Custer was charged following a traffic stop by Sr. Tpr. D. E. Bailey in which an odor of marijuana was detected by the officer. Custer relinquished his product and contraband to the Trooper and was cited for misdemeanor possession. 
On a separate traffic stop later in the evening, Kesner was encountered by Sr. Tpr. Travelpiece as she entered West Virginia from McCoole.  During the encounter, Kesner was suspected to be driving under the influence of alcohol. Subsequent to the Trooper’s investigation, she was charged with DUI.
On Sunday, March 17, at approximately 9:45 p.m., TFC A. R. Hanlon was dispatched to a vehicle accident on US Route 50, near New Creek, within Mineral County. Mineral County 911 reported a vehicle had traveled off the roadway and into a ditch, placing the vehicle nearly on its side.
Upon Trooper Hanlon’s arrival, it was determined that a male subject identified as Jeffrey Price, 53, from Aurora, West Virginia, had lost control of his vehicle and traveled off the north roadway edge into a creek.
Trooper Hanlon’s observation of Price indicated he was under the influence of alcohol at that time. Upon completion of standardized field sobriety tests, Price was placed under arrest for driving under the influence.
