He has been wanted since February 12th, when he failed to appear in court for an arraignment related to felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and failure to affix a tax stamp.
Police allege that West picked up a large amount of marijuana at a local shipping company that was shipped from another state that has legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes.
West is being held on $10,000 cash bond. No court date has been set.
