HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two people with an alleged connection to a Florida pain clinic were arrested Thursday night after a drug bust at a Huntington apartment building.

Members of Huntington's Violent Crime Drug Task Force and the Cabell County Sheriff's Department searched an apartment on the 2300 block of Adams Avenue -- and arrested Brendon Lamm, 28, and Kristin Thacker, 26.

They found what they call a "sophisticated growing cabinet," and manuals for how to grow marijuana. Police also found marijuana in the freezer and in paper bags.

Officers seized a loaded 25 caliber handgun, boxes of ammo and Oxycontin pills with numerous Florida pain clinic business cards -- along with driving directions to the pain clinic.

Lamm was arrested on one count cultivation of marijuana, two counts possession with intent to deliver of a controlled substance and one county of delivery of a controlled substance.

Thacker was charged with one count cultivation of marijuana and two counts possession with intent to deliver of a controlled substance.

Both Lamm and Thacker are in the Western Regional Jail, pending bond.
