An undercover drug investigation nets three arrests in Kanawha County.

Saint Albans Police served a search warrant at a house on Grant Avenue Friday night, police said.

The house belongs to Timothy Basham, who police have arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver Opana.

Basham had been under surveillance by the police department. Police said a confidential information purchased Opana from him, which lead to the execution of the search warrant.

During the search of Basham's house, officers also came into contact with Demarko Randle and Martaze Davis, both from Detroit, Mich.

The men told police they were at Basham's house to pick up money, which had been collected from illegal drug sales in the Kanawha County area, authorities said.

The men were in town to collect the money and head back to Detroit, when they said they missed their bus.

Randle and Davis have also been charged with possession with intent to deliver Opana.

Police said the men also have outstanding warrants in Michigan.

All three men are in the South Central Regional Jail with bail set at $10,000 each.
