HUNTINGTON — Police arrested a Huntington man they said had methamphetamine on him during a traffic stop Monday.

Corey Steven Allen, 27, is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, second-offense DUI, driving on a suspended license for DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Allen was also wanted for charges of introducing a controlled substance into a correctional facility, receiving and transferring stolen property and a capias warrant, according to criminal complaints filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court.

At about 2:30 p.m. Monday, police stopped a 2004 Honda Goldwing motorcycle driven by Allen in the 800 block of 7th Avenue. Allen’s registration sticker expired in 2017 and he also did not have a driver’s license stemming from a DUI suspension on Nov. 5, 2018, according to the complaints.

Police said Allen had constricted pupils, low and raspy speech and open sores on his face and arms. Allen said the sores were from meth use and he had used about .25 to .50 grams of meth along with Suboxone earlier that day, according to the complaints.

During a search, police said they found 2.3 grams of meth, a glass pipe and multiple needles inside his pockets.

Police gave Allen a field sobriety test, which allegedly showed impairment. He refused a secondary blood test, according to the complaints.

Allen was arraigned in Cabell County Magistrate Court and was ordered held in the Western Regional Jail in lieu of a $68,000 bond.
