FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. -- Two men face felony drug trafficking charges after police found almost 100 prescription pills in their hotel room.

Andre Lamariam Riley, 50, of Detroit and Scott Allen Cafego, 34, of Oak Hill, each face felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Early Tuesday morning, police executed a search warrant in Room 243 of the Quality Inn in Fayetteville.
