The following information was provided by the Cabell County Magistrate Court:

POSSESSION WITH INTENT TO DELIVER: Huntington Police responded to a home in the 1300 block of 9th Avenue around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday on a domestic violence call. When they arrived, they were invited into the home by the woman who lives there and were informed that two men were fighting upstairs.

Officers located the two suspects on the third floor of the building, where they could smell a very strong odor of marijuana. More than 80 grams of marijuana and $445 in cash were located in the area.

Aaron Marcel Spaulding, 31, and Michael Leshane Watson, 32, of Huntington, were arrested on charges of felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. They are currently being held in Western Regional Jail on $100,000 bonds.

The following information was provided by reports filed by the Cabell County Sheriff's Office:

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT: A 29-year-old Huntington woman reported her ex-boyfriend assaulted her and stole her purse while they were in a vehicle together in the parking lot of a business in the 6400 block of East Pea Ridge Road around 9 p.m. Thursday. When she was able to get out of the vehicle, the man struck her with it and threatened to hurt her more if she didn't get back inside. She refused and the man attempted to hit her again with the vehicle, but she was able to climb up a nearby tree. He then left the scene with her purse still in the vehicle and drove east on U.S. 60.

When a deputy responded to the victim's home in the 200 block of Wilkinson to get her statement, the man arrived and started banging on the window. William Ernest Smith, 32, of Barboursville, was placed under arrest at that time and the deputy retrieved the victim's purse from his vehicle.

Smith was taken to Cabell County Magistrate Court and placed in a holding cell where he then kicked a hole in the wall, causing $250 worth of damage, deputies said.

He was arraigned on charges of malicious wounding, domestic battery, domestic assault, petit larceny, driving suspended for DUI and destruction of property. He is currently in the Western Regional Jail on a $46,000 bond.

LARCENY: Integrity Wire Inc., 1060 Cedar Crest Road, Huntington, reported someone cut apart an air conditioning unit and stole the coils from it between 5:15 p.m. Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. Thursday. Damages were estimated to be $3,000.

RECOVERED STOLEN PROPERTY: A deputy recovered a stolen $2,500 gold ring from a jewelry store in the Huntington Mall on Thursday and obtained warrants accusing William Casey Lockwood, 22, of Barboursville, of eceiving and transferring stolen property and false pretense on behalf of the jewelry store. The suspect was located at a restaurant near the mall and taken to Cabell County Magistrate Court to be arraigned. He is currently in the Western Regional Jail on a $20,000 bond.
