Three Kanawha County subjects have been arrested on drug charges in Fayette County. Sheriff Steve W. Kessler released the following information regarding this incident.

On Monday March 11th 2013, a Sheriff's Deputy of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department conducted a traffic stop on a 2014 Cadillac Escalade on U.S. Route 60 in the Boomer area near the Post Office. This vehicle was occupied by subjects from Kanawha County. Further investigations led to a quantity of a controlled pain medication (Roxycodone 30mg) which was illegally possessed within the vehicle. Also located was a large sum of money possessed by one of the vehicle's occupants. All three occupants of the vehicle were arrested at the time of the stop.

Jason D. Payne (age 31 of Marmet, Kanawha County) was arrested on a Felony count of Possession with the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance and a Felony count of Conspiracy to Commit a Felony. Amanda K. Payne (age 32 of Marmet, Kanawha County) was arrested on a Felony count of Possession with the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance and a Felony count of Conspiracy to Commit a Felony. Brittany L. Ramsey (age 25 of Cedar Grove, Kanawha County) was arrested on one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance and one Felony count of Conspiracy to Commit a Felony. All three subjects were transported to the Southern Regional Jail to await arraignment.

During this particular incident, investigative information led the Sheriff's Deputies to a nearby residence that is allegedly related to the illegal sales of narcotics. A search warrant was obtained and executed on this residence belonging to Macon Fragale. During the execution of this search warrant, a substantial sum of cash money was located and seized which is allegedly related to drug sales.

These two incidents remain under investigation by Sgt. T.N. Mooney, Cpl. S.R. Morris and Deputy P.J. Pack of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department.
