CLARKSBURG, W.Va. -- A federal judge has rescheduled the drug trial of a Clarksburg man charged with selling illegal bath salts at two north-central West Virginia stores.
U.S. marshals are searching for 57-year-old John Skruck, a former Texas resident who failed to show up for his trial Tuesday. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call them at 304-623-0486.
Skruck is white, 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, with long, gray-brown hair and a beard.
Prosecutors say he failed to return Monday from an approved out-of-town trip, and an arrest warrant was issued.
On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley entered an order delaying his trial until Sept. 4.
Skruck ran the Hot Stuff Cool Things stores in Buckhannon and Clarksburg before authorities raided and closed them last April.
