No one living on Fulton St. In a quiet Wheeling neighborhood would have suspected that a major oxycodone dealer would be arrested just next door.
Around 6:40 a.m. Saturday morning, the Ohio Valley Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and the Marshall County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force arranged a buy bust for oxycodone.
During the operation officers arrested Suhip E. Ebrahim, 26, of Bridgeport, West Virginia.
US Attorney Bill Ihlenfeld tells 7News, officers allegedly recovered huge amounts of prescription pain killers, nearly 600, and over 100,000 dollars.
According to a criminal complaint from West Virginia State Trooper White, when Ronnell Williams and Chase Goolie were finished with the buy, officers counted the pills purchased and found 95. When asked about the missing pills Williams said the supplier had shorted them.
Officers watched videos of the buy and saw Goolie cover one of the 3 cameras and take 5 or 6 pills and put them in her mouth. Williams also put a pill in his mouth. Goolie is then shown spitting out the pills, but keeping them in her hand.
Saturday afternoon, Williams and Goolie were seen in Ohio County magistrate court. Both are being held in the Northern Regional Jail.
Goolie is being charged with false information to law enforcement and possession of a controlled substance. Williams is being held without bond.
Ebrahim was seen in federal court on Saturday before U.S. Magistrate Judge James Seibert. He is currently being held in Northern Regional Jail without bond and is charged with “Possession with Intent to Distribute Oxycodone.”
