Drug sting leads to Lewis County arrest
WESTON -The Lewis County Sheriff's Department arrested an area man Monday for selling prescription pain medication in several Central West Virginia counties.
Sheriff Adam Gissy said a controlled sale led to the arrest of Isaac Waugh. Gissy said the department typically does not conduct controlled buys, but it became necessary because Waugh allegedly was buying and selling medication across several counties including Lewis, Upshur, Randolph and Marion.
Gissy said a confidential informant allegedly purchased 35-milligram Percocet tablets from Waugh under the supervision of deputies in the Horner area.
"We thought it was imperative to get him behind bars because of the amount of people he was dealing with," Gissy said.
Waugh is being charged with one count of delivery of a controlled substance, but more charges are pending.
