CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Two men were arrested after deputies found drugs in a Fayette County home during an ongoing investigation into drug activity in the Oak Hill areas.
Phillip Edward Gray, 30, of Charleston and Phillip Edward Moore, also known as "Nook," were arrested Saturday night after the search of a mobile home in Hilltop, according to a press release issued by the Fayette Sheriff's Office.
Officers working with the Central W.Va. Drug Task Force, Fayette Sheriff's Office and State Police executed a search warrant Saturday night on a mobile home at Mountaineer Trailer Park in Hilltop. The search turned up a large amount of heroin, crack cocaine, hydrocodone pills and marijuana as well as a small amount of cash, the release said.
Information from an ongoing drug investigation in the Oak Hill, Glen Jean and Mount Hope areas led to the search warrant.
"These charges stem from an on-going investigation into drug trafficking in the local area," Sheriff Steve Kessler said in the release. "We anticipate that additional charges may be forthcoming in the near future."
Both men were charged with four counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and one count of conspiracy to commit a felony.
Moore was released on bond while Gray remained at Southern Regional Jail on $75,000 bond.
