Two men were arrested Tuesday evening after they were spotted apparently dividing up a bottle of pills.
Sweetwater Police Officer Justin White said he was told around 6:30 p.m. that a man had come into the Wil-Sav Drugs to get his medicine, but another person paid for it. Then, the car they were in went into an adjoining parking lot and met up with another car.
White said he found the car and SUV in the parking lot and identified Gary Smith as a passenger in the car and Brandon Roy Divine as the driver.
According to arrest warrants, a search of Divine turned up nine round, orange pills that were identified as Oxymorphone, a prescription pain killer. A search of Smith then turned up a bottle, which had 42 pills in it, with a date showing the prescription had been filled that day for 60 pills. White said Smith also had a a 20-dollar bill with one and half pills in it.
Smith told White he had taken the other pills.
White said he read the two their Miranda rights, but they waived them and allegedly admitted Divine had paid for Smith’s prescription and that they were planning to meet Smith’s son in the parking lot when the officer arrived.
Both Smith, 55, Cedar Valley Road, Sweetwater, and Divine, 33, County Road 316, Sweetwater, were arrested and charged with the sale/delivery/possession of a schedule II narcotic (Oxymorphone).
