Two convicted felons arrested on drug, child neglect charges

Feb. 09, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Two convicted felons were arrested Saturday evening on felony charges after a probation check at their home in the 300 block of West Ninth Street, according to the West Virginia State Police.

Amanda Ogben and Dustin Ogben, both 32, have been charged with child neglect, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and being felons in possession of a firearm after police say they found small amounts of heroin and prescription pills as well as a sawed off shotgun at their home around 7 p.m. Saturday.

According to State Police, they assisted probation with the home visit after probation received several tips about illegal activity at the home. When they arrived, they found heroin and pills laying throughout the home, which they described as being in deplorable condition.

State Police say the couple had previously been convicted of child neglect.
