A South Webster man was picked up by authorities Monday night on a warrant to arrest on indictment issued by the Scioto County Common Pleas Court.
According to Sheriff Marty V. Donini and Portsmouth Police Chief Robert Ware, the indictment warrant had been sought for 65-year-old Roy E. Hall, of South Webster, by members of the Southern Ohio Drug Task Force and the Scioto County Prosecutor’s Office.
The case against Hall had been presented to a Scioto County Grand Jury with an indictment returned on six counts of drug offenses, including trafficking of Buprenorphine (a felony in the fifth degree), possession of Buprenorphine (a misdemeanor of the first degree), trafficking in Alprazolam (a felony in the fifth degree), possession of Alprazolam (a misdemeanor of the first degree), trafficking in Oxycodone (a felony in the fourth degree), and aggravated possession of Oxycodone (a felony in the fifth degree).
Hall was located and arrested Monday night, and placed in the Scioto County Jail. He is reportedly being held without bond pending an arraignment in Scioto County Common Pleas Court.
