HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – A man from northern Ohio who police referred to as a “large supplier of drugs” was arrested Wednesday in Huntington, according to the city.

Investigators with the Huntington Violent Crime-Drug Task force arrested Davis from an apartment in the 1100 block of Rear 9th Avenue.

Detectives seized more than 100 grams of suspected fentanyl, heroin, pills, marijuana, cash, a cell phone, scales and paraphernalia they say is consistent with the packaging and sale of drugs. Detectives also recovered two guns, including one reported stolen from the Barboursville area.

A woman was detained at the scene and released. The property owner will be issued a nuisance letter for criminal activity at the apartment.
