A Fayette County man was arrested after the search of a sports bar in Smithers turned up prescription painkillers, marijuana and cash.
Officers from the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force, Fayette Sheriff's Department and State Police served a search warrant Thursday night at B&G Sports Bar and Grill. Authorities sought the warrant after an informant bought drugs in the bar earlier in the evening, according to a statement by the sheriff's department.
The search turned up multiple Opana pills, six bags of marijuana, a set of digital scales and more than $1,500. David Alfanzo Bohanna, 57, was charged with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
"We anticipate that additional charges will be filed against Mr. Bohanna in the near future," Sheriff Steve Kessler said in the release. "Charges may be filed against other individuals in connection with this case as well.
"The investigation into drug trafficking offenses in the Valley area of Fayette County is ongoing and continuing. Rest assured, our work in this area is not yet done."
Bohanna was free on $10,000 bond Sunday evening. The matter remains under investigation.
