A Parkersburg man charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver is sentenced to probation for three years.

52-year-old Steven Wilson was arrested back in June after concerned community members reported seeing suspicious activity around his home along Andrew Street.

Police say they want you to continue to call them with tips if you see anything that you feel isn't right in your neighborhood.

A Parkersburg man faces drug charges after tips from the community lead to his arrest.

Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin says the Parkersburg Police and the Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force went to home of 52-year-old Steven Wilson today after receiving several online tips about suspicious activity there.

Officials say Wilson was cooperative, allowing them into his Andrew Street residence.

Martin says they found marijuana and money sitting in plain view, along with sandwhich bags of suspected heroin.

He says the street value of the heroin is around $3,000.

Police say Wilson admitted to owning the drugs.

He now faces charges of possession of heroin with the intent to deliver.

Wilson was taken to the Parkersburg Police Department for booking and then to Wood County Magistrate Court for arraignment.

He failed to post his $100,000 bond.

Martin encourages the public to continue to be vigilant in their neighborhoods.
