OAK HILL - Three Oak Hill residents
are in jail following an ongoing narcotics investigation by an Oak Hill police
officer assigned to the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force.
Eric Wayne England, 39, Matthew
Quinton Simpson, 25, and Peggy Lee Black, 33, are all charged with possession
with intent to deliver marijuana, possession with intent to deliver Roxycodone
and conspiracy to commit a felony. England and Simpson are also charged with
