HUNTINGTON — Two Huntington women were arrested on Thursday as a result of three narcotics search warrants executed in the West End.

Huntington Police Chief Ray Cornwell said members of the Huntington Violent Crime Drug Force, the Huntington Police Department’s Criminal Investigative Bureau and SWAT team, along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives executed the warrants.

The warrants led to the seizure of 133 grams of suspected heroin, 135 grams of crystal methamphetamine, more than $22,000 in cash and three firearms.

One raid in the 700 block of West 3rd Street led to the arrest of Pamela McCoy, 51, of Huntington, who Cornwell said was in possession of 14.7 grams of suspected crystal meth and 8 grams of suspected heroin. She was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy.

Another raid in the 1900 block of Washington Avenue led to the arrest of Alissa Perkins, 32, of Huntington, who Cornwell said had “the bulk of the narcotics and cash” at her home.

She was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy.

Cornwell expects more charges will be forthcoming.
