A Nicholas County couple was arrested in Webster County Wednesday after police said they found drugs in a vehicle.

Colin Cochran, 20, of Craigsville, and Monika Peek, 29, of Mount Nebo, were in possession of eight baggies of methamphetamine, two Hydrocodone pills, a bag of marijuana, and portions of a Subutex pill, according to West Virginia State Police.  The couple also had a marijuana grinder and a smoking device commonly used to smoke methamphetamine, police said.

Peek told police she and Cochran went to Webster County to sell methamphetamine, but that she did not know how much Cochran was going to sell or for how much, according to court documents.  Cochran told police they went to the area to do the drugs.

Cochran was also found to have a suspended driver’s license and had no insurance on the vehicle, police said.

Cochran and Peek are each charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver and three counts of conspiracy to commit a felony.
