Charleston police arrested a Huntington man who they said was carrying prescription drugs that he had purchased in California.
Bryan Lee Staley, 36, of Huntington was arrested for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
Detective Cpl. D.C. Johnson responded to the Marathon Station at Greenbrier Street and Oakridge Drive in Charleston early Tuesday. The complaint said Johnson found Staley who had reportedly left one vehicle and gotten into another vehicle waiting on the lot of the Marathon station.
A short time later, Johnson said he saw Staley get out of the other vehicle and found him in possession of a valid prescription of 60 milligrams of oxycontin and 30 milligrams of roxicotin he had received in Beverly Hills, Calif., the complaint stated.
During the investigation, Johnson said he learned Staley had taken Desiree Divita's credit card to pay for the prescriptions in California. In return for using the credit card, she received eight oxycontin 60 milligrams and four roxicotin 30 milligrams from Staley.
