BECKLEY - A convicted felon is behind bars again after Raleigh County authorities said he was found with heroin and marijuana.

Beckley Police arrested Gregory Waters, 45, Monday night for two counts of possession with intent to deliver heroin and one count of possession of marijuana.

The drugs have a reported street value of $1,500. Bloxton said $600 in cash was also seized.
