 Efforts to stop the illegal sale of prescription drugs took a step forward on Thursday, July 31, 2014 after law enforcement officers arrested an Oak Hill man.  Curtis Lynn Treadway, 54, of Oak Hill is charged with Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver and Conspiracy to Commit a Felony.

According to a release from the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, Treadway sold a large amount of Roxycodone pills from a home on White Oak Ford Road.  Officers with the Central West Virginia and Raleigh County Drug Task Forces were involved in the controlled buy. Later that night, officers searched the home and found Roxycodone Pills, several firearms and more than $17,000 in cash.  The money included the cash that was spent to buy the drugs earlier in the day.

"The Central West Virginia Drug Task Force is comprised of troopers from the West Virginia State Police as well as officers from throughout Nicholas and Fayette Counties, including the Fayette County Sheriff's Office and the Oak Hill Police Department," said Sheriff Steve Kessler.  "Participation in this task force permits us to make the most effective use of our manpower resources toward combating drug trafficking in Fayette County."

Treadway is being held in the Southern Regional Jail on a $75,000 bond. The incident is still under investigation.  Anyone with information about drug trafficking in Fayette County is asked to contact the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force at 304-872-0377.
