MARION COUNTY -

Marion County authorities made several drug related arrests Friday night.

Marion County Deputy Bledsoe said the United States Postal Service intercepted a piece of mail that contained nearly 200 pills and turned it over to law enforcement.

West Virginia State Police arrested Christopher Hebb, 21, after tracking the piece of mail back to him.

James Varner, 27, was on his way to purchase drugs from Hebb when deputies pulled him over on a routine traffic stop.

Upon searching Varner's car, deputies found a large amount of meth.

Later, deputies searched Varner's residence and found more meth, scales, and bags.

Deputy Bledsoe said Varner was recently released from jail on bond after facing similar drug charges.

Varner has been charged with possession with the intent to deliver meth.

Hebb is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Both men are being held in the North Central Regional Jail. Bail has not yet been set.

The West Virginia State Police and Marion County Sheriff's Department are working together on the investigation.
