DUNBAR, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A call about a naked man hanging from a hotel window ended with a drug bust.

Dunbar Police went to the Dunbar Plaza Hotel Monday night, where they say they found Earl Finley, 42, in the room in question.

They say they searched the room and found several hypodermic needles, marijuana, and hundreds of pills.

Finley is from Dunbar, but has a warrant for his arrest on a parole violation out of Detroit.

Dunbar Police Chief Jess Bailes says it's another battle won in the war against drugs. "This is a very big bust. All of the items were packaged for resale. There were scales in the room, so it was apparent that they intended to resale the drugs; possibly here on the streets of Dunbar."

Finley is being held in the South Central Regional Jail.

A woman in the room with Finley was also cited for possession of marijuana.
