Two arrested on assorted charges
PARKERSBURG – Two Parkersburg residents were arrested Monday afternoon on various charges by the Parkersburg Violent Crime and Narcotics Task Force.
Terrance J. McGuirk, 44, of 1/2 Bird St., Parkersburg, was located Monday around 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Family Dollar at 3018 Seventh St. McGuirk was a wanted fugitive from justice, police said.
Amanda L. Massey, 32, of 2601 16th Ave., Parkersburg, was arrested on a felony charge of being an accessory after the fact of a crime, officials said.
Task force members conducted surveillance after receiving a tip from a source about McGuirk being in the area of East Seventh Street in Parkersburg.
On Jan. 30, McGuirk stood trial in circuit court for three counts of possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine. During a break in the trial, McGuirk fled and failed to appear for the rest of his trial.
According to court records, a jury found McGuirk guilty on all three counts of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, all felonies. Judge Jeffrey Reed issued a bench warrant for the arrest of McGuirk, who had been missing since then.
Massey was arraigned in Wood County Magistrate Court and is being held on a $10,000 bond. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison.
