Agents of the Major Crimes Task Force arrested two suspects Thursday evening on charges of selling prescription drugs in the vicinity of Fort Frye High School in Beverly.
According to police, task force agents were able to purchase 60 Percocet pills from Stephon E. Hite, 23, of 455 Half Ave., Circleville, for $360 at Dodge Park in Beverly.
When the transaction was completed, agents then conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle driven by Jennifer N. Stout, 19, of 8245 Reinersville Road, McConnelsville.
During that stop, police found Hite to be in possession of 12 additional Percocet pills as well as 15 Flexeril pills, marijuana and a marijuana pipe.
Under questioning, Stout said she obtained the pills from her mother and transported them to Washington County to be sold, according to police.
Stout told police she had done that several times, and usually splits the money with her mother.
As a result of the stop, Hite was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of possession of a Schedule II drug while Stout was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of complicity in trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a school.
Bond for Hite was set at $17,500 and $15,000 for Stout.
