A Blanket man who was free on bond in a counterfeiting investigation was arrested Thursday on an allegation that he intended to sell powerful prescription painkillers, authorities said.
Richard Humphries, 48, was booked into the Brown County Jail on a charge of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance over 4 grams under 200 grams, jail records state.
According to a report by sheriff’s investigator Carlyle Gover:
Gover followed up on information about an individual who allegedly possessed prescription pain medication for sale. Gover saw Humphries driving on Early Boulevard and stopped Humphries’ vehicle for having an expired registration.
Humphries consented to a search of himself and his vehicle, and Gover located 29 Oxycontin tablets and 89 Oxycodone tablets. “I believe from my information and the tablets being separated for sale and the way they were hidden, that Humphries’ intention was to sell the tablets,” Gover’s report states.
Before his Thursday arrest, Humphries was free on bond on charges of forgery of government money, prohibited weapons in a drug free zone and possessing chemicals used to manufacture drugs, the report states.
