Two men were charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin after the drug was discovered in a vehicle in Nitro, police said.

Smith and Randolph were transported to the South Central Regional Jail. Police said the other man in the car, Legg, had brass knuckles in the seat near him was cited for carrying a concealed and deadly weapon.
