Two charged for prescription drug sales
WAYNESBURG – State police arrested two people for allegedly selling prescription drugs. Working with a confidential informant, police arranged to purchase Percocet pills Jan. 19 from Jesse Dean Stoneking, 25, of 54 Hoard St., Cameron, W.Va.
The informant gave the phone number of an undercover agent to Randi Lynn Shiben, 27, of 494 West Roy Furman Highway, Waynesburg, who arranged for the purchase from Stoneking. Shiben sent the agent a text message with a price per pill of $40 and her address in Richhill Township.
When agents entered the residence, Shiben called for Stoneking. According to an affidavit, Stoneking exited a room and handed Shiben a foil wrapper containing four Percocet pills. An agent gave Shiben $160 for the pills and left the residence.
On Jan. 23, the agent arranged to make a second purchase of Percocet. When they entered Shiben’s residence she removed five Percocet pills form a desk drawer in her dining room and charged the agent $200 for them.
Stoneking is charged with criminal conspiracy and three counts of violating the controlled substance act. A preliminary hearing has not been scheduled for him.
