Prescription pill abuse, in Putnam County, has become a major problem, according to law enforcement officials. Thanks to an alert trooper, two alleged drug dealers and a bunch of pills are off the streets and in police custody.

Two Putnam County men took a trip to jail, Wednesday, after their arrests on felony charges, jail records state.

Alexander Loren Knoll, and John Hartley Nelson, both of Poca, were arrested late Tuesday night, May 29th, 2012, by West Virginia State Police Trooper B.K. Hammondtree.

According to Putnam County Magistrate Court records, each is charged with:

  • Conspiracy
  • Possession of Hydrocodone (2 counts)
  • Possession With Intent to Deliver
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance

Hammondtree reports pulling Nelson over on Dupont Lane, in Poca, for driving 48 miles per hour in a 30 mile per hour zone. That is when he says he found the pills in the car. In a matter of minutes, a simple speeding ticket turned into a multi-felony drug bust.

After their arrests, Knoll and Nelson were transported to the Western Regional Jail and Correctional Facility, in Barboursville. Officials booked and photographed them at 25 minutes after midnight, according to the jail's website.

During a hearing, Knoll and Nelson's bond were set, at $15,000, by Putnam County Magistrate Linda J. Hunt, jail records state.

Knoll's Putnam County Magistrate Court case numbers are: 12F, 207-211. Nelson's are: 12F, 202-206.
