An arrest by a Wheelersburg sheriff's deputy has led to charges being filed against an Ashland, Ky., man.
Wesley A. Stull, 26, of 7906 Ray Drive, is charged with possession of drugs and tampering with evidence, both felonies of the third degree.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said at about 8:59 p.m. Tuesday, a deputy patrolman from his office, assigned to Porter Township, made the arrest after responding to a complaint received by the sheriff's office dispatch center. The call was in regard to a male subject passed out in the driver's seat of a vehicle parked on the Kroger parking lot, on Ohio River Road in Wheelersburg.
Upon his arrival, the deputy discovered Stull in the back seat, acting in what he described as “a suspicious manner,” by quickly moving things around in the vehicle.
When the deputy did a pat- down for weapons on Stull, he reportedly found 46 oxycodone 30-milligram pills and a shortened drinking straw inside a toboggan he was wearing.
After he placed Stull under arrest, the deputy was notified by a Kroger employee that while the deputy was investigating the complaint, Stull reportedly had tossed a small baggy into a water drain on the parking lot.
At that time, the deputy seized 48 Xanax pills from inside the drain. The deputy said Stull later admitted to tossing the pills inside the drain.
Stull was placed in Scioto County Jail and is being held on a $15,000 bond.
Stull was arraigned in Portsmouth Municipal Court on Wednesday morning. Bond was set at $7,500 each on two charges, and he remains in Scioto County Jail.
