Two men are in jail after being arrested in a drug bust in Westwood, KY, in Boyd County.

According to a release issued by the Boyd County Sheriff's Office, Steven B. Grossl, 50, of Ashland, KY, and Steven D. Pursley, 43, of Catlettsburg, KY, were arrested Saturday after police made a controlled audio recorded buy of eight Oxycodone 30 milligram tablets from Grossl, who was selling the drugs, and Pursley, who drove Grossl to the buy, in the area of Johnson Street in Westwood.

Police say that after the buy was made, deputies followed Grossl and Pursley and made a traffic stop in the area of Main Street and Virginia Street in Westwood.

During the traffic stop, deputies found Grossl had even more Oxycodone 30 milligram tablets, as well as money, on his person, and Pursley was in possession of hypodermic syringes.

Both Grossl and Pursley were then arrrested.

Grossl is being charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and having a prescription not in a proper container.

Pursley is being charged with complicity to trafficking a controlled substance.

Both are being held in the Boyd County Detention Center.
