HUNTINGTON, WV -

A Michigan man is accused of having heroin inside the Cabell County Courthouse. 

Officers with the Huntington Police Department say Roy Harrington, 41, of Inkster, Mich., is charged with felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, as well as two misdemeanors, fleeing and obstructing. 

Monday, just before noon, a Cabell County Courthouse security officer said Harrington had a plastic baggy of what appeared to be heroin.  Harrington then ran from the courthouse.

After a brief chase, Harrington was found hiding and ordered to come out. Officers say Harrington tried to take off again and that is when officers used a stun gun.  Medics with Cabell County Emergency Medical Services treated Harrington. 

The baggy tested positive for 3.3 grams of heroin and officers found a total of $840 on Harrington. He was taken to the Western Regional Jail and his bail was set at $30,000.
