A husband and wife, who investigators say took pain medications from patients at a Wheelersburg nursing home, are in jail on felony drug charges.

Members of the Southern Ohio Drug Task Force and New Boston Police Department arrested 49-year-old Daniel Williams and 46-year-old Robin Williams at their Portsmouth residence on Saturday.
The Scioto County Sheriff's Office says that during a search of the home, investigators seized liquid Morphine, Hydrocodone pills, Oxycodone pills, and numerous medications that had been prescribed to approximately 28 patients at a
heelersburg nursing home. 
Sheriff Marty Donini says Daniel Williams was currently employed as a nurse at the nursing home, while Robin William previously worked as a nurse's assistant at the nursing home.
Donini says some of the liquid Morphine seized had already been drawn into syringes and prepared for sale.
Detectives also seized drug paraphernalia, marijuana and three guns at the residence.
The pair are being held in the Scioto County Jail on multiple drug charges.
