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 delivery of a controlled substance.

All three suspects were at a house on 314 Central Avenue in Oak Hill when Drug Task Force members were able to purchase prescription Roxycodone pills, according to Oak Hill Police Chief Michael Whisman. A short time later, members of the Oak Hill Police Department, Fayette County Sheriff's Office, West Virginia State Police and the Drug Task Force served a search warrant and arrested the suspects.

Officers recovered more than $2,500 and a large amount of marijuana and Roxycodone pills, according to Whisman. England, Simpson and Black were placed in Southern Regional Jail pending arraignment in front of a Fayette County Magistrate.
