3 from Michigan Charged with Attempting to Flee from Police in West Virginia

WHITE HALL, W.VA. – Three individuals from Michigan are now locked up and charged with attempting to flee from police along with other charges in White Hall, West Virginia.

Regano Jones, 25-years-old, of Roseville, Dejuan WIlliams, 26-years-old, and Tyrese Marsh, 27-years-old, both of Detroit, were originally pulled over for speeding. The three of them were in a rented Jeep Cherokee traveling at 52 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone, according to White Hall Police.

Officers stopped the car in a gravel lot near the I-79 southbound entrance ramp and discovered that the vehicle was registered to Hertz Vehicle Rentals, officers said. The vehicle did have a registration and license plate identifying it as being from Michigan. The driver of the Jeep was identified as Regano Jones.

Officers allegedly detected a heavy odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. Its was at that time that assistance from a Fairmont police K9 unit was requested.

When the K9 unit arrived on scene, the Jeep sped off on W.Va. Route 250 southbound. As the car sped away, a civilian witness saw Tyrese Marsh toss a shoe box from the vehicle.

Officers with the White Hall Police Department, as well as officers with the West Virginia State Police, Marion County Sheriff’s Department and Fairmont Police Department pursued the vehicle. They eventually got the vehicle stopped on the shoulder of the road near mile marker 128 of southbound I-79.

After getting the three suspects to cooperate, they were immediately taken into custody. Officers allegedly found Marsh and Williams to both be in possession of a large amount of cash on each of them. There was also a large sum of cash found in plain view in the vehicle. It was at that time that Tyrese Marsh informed officers that there was a firearm in a backpack in the vehicle.

Officers located the shoebox that had been tossed from the vehicle. It contained over 1 pound of methamphetamine, 2.3 ounces of crack and 2.5 ounces of a heroine laced with fentanyl.

Regano Jones, Dejuan Williams and Tyrese Marsh are all charged with possession with intent to deliver controlled substances and conspiracy. Regano Jones has the added charge of fleeing officers since it was determined that she was the driver of the Jeep.

Williams and Marsh are being held in North Central Regional Jail. Both of their bonds are $500,000. Regano Jones is being held in North Central Regional Jail on a $750,000 bond.
