SISSONVILLE, W.Va. -- A Sissonville woman faces felony drug distribution charges after police found numerous drugs, including methamphetamine, and more than $900 in her pocket Monday morning.
Around 5:15 a.m. Monday, Kanawha County Sheriff's Deputy C.D. Lyons was called to the 7-Eleven convenience store in Sissonville about a suspicious person. Lyons found a male and Elizabeth D. Browning, 40, of Grapevine Road, Sissonville, sitting in the parking lot.
The male, who has not been identified, told Lyons he was under the influence of prescription narcotics and was treated by paramedics.
Lyons obtained consent from Browning to search her purse and a vehicle at the scene. He allegedly found more than 60 prescription pills, including 39 Xanax tablets, and less than half a gram of methamphetamine. Lyons also allegedly found $906 in Browning's pants pocket.
Browning was charged with felony possession with intent to distribute narcotics. She was arraigned in Kanawha County Magistrate Court and was being held Tuesday evening on a $10,000 bond at South Central Regional Jail. Her companion was not charged.
