BARBOURSVILLE, WV - A husband and wife face two felonies a piece after being arrested Wednesday morning at Sheetz in Barbousville, WV. Lonnie L. Napier Jr. faces a felon charge of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and child neglect creating risk of injury. Melissa Napier faces the same two charges.

Melissa Napier's five-year-old child and a 38-year-old special needs man whom she was in care for were also in their car. 

A customer at Sheetz alerted an officer filling out an accident report at the gas station that they thought it was suspicious activity coming from the Napier's car. 

Among prescription pills and drug paraphernalia in the car, $2,500 was found in the car as well. 

The couple remains in the Western Regional Jail with bail set at $100,000. 

The couple was traveling from Tennessee to New York.
