BOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) — Two men are in jail after Boyd County Sheriff’s deputies say they bought oxycodone tablets from them and then found more drugs and needles on the pair when deputies stopped their car.

According to a release from the Boyd County Sheriff’s Office, deputies said they audio-recorded a drug deal on Saturday night in Westwood, Ky., where they bought eight oxycodone pills from Steven B. Grossl, 50, of Ashland and Steven D. Pursley, 43, of Catlettsburg.

Deputies then followed the two men and stopped their car on Main Street and Virginia Street in Westwood. There, deputies say Grossl had more oxycodone pills and money, while Pursley, the driver, is accused of having hypodermic syringes with him.

Grossl is charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and prescription not in proper container. Pursley is charged with complicity to trafficking a controlled substance.

Both men are being held at the Boyd County Detention Center.
