Four arrested in city drug raid

Jun. 22, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Officers found heroin, oxycodone and children Thursday in a home on Huntington's Southside.

That combination yielded four arrests, as city police executed a search warrant in the 800 block of 11th Avenue. The raid was based upon neighborhood complaints of suspected drug activity at the residence, according to a press release issued by the Huntington Police Department.

Inside officers found several drug abusers, along with four children in close proximity to heroin and the prescription painkiller oxycodone. The children were turned over to Child Protective Services, according to the press release.

Jail and court records, along with the press release, identified those arrested on felonies as Keith Eric Wood, 28; Lindsey Alyn Thacker, 28; and Thomas Lee Day, 37. Their charges and bond amounts varied, along with that of a fourth man charged with two counts of misdemeanor drug possession.

Wood was charged with felony child abuse and misdemeanor prohibited acts, along with a felony fraudulent schemes warrant filed Friday stemming from an April incident, according to records in Cabell County Magistrate Court.

Thacker was charged with felony child abuse and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, according to the court records.

Day was charged with being a fugitive from justice and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, according to the court records.
