A husband and wife accused of trafficking prescription drugs were arrested early this morning.

Officers from the Lawrence Drug & Major Crimes Task Force and the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at the home of Terry Lee Gannon, 40, and Cindy Gannon, 34, on 480 County Road 7C Ironton.

According to a press release from the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s Office, the task force, on five occasions over the last month, completed controlled purchases of oxycodone from Terry Gannon.

Information gathered during the investigation indicated Gannon allegedly travelled to Detroit, Mich., to purchase large quantities of oxycodone and transport them to Lawrence County for distribution.

Officers seized various drugs and firearms from the residence.

Terry Gannon is charged with trafficking in drugs, a felony of the third degree.

Cindy Gannon is charged with possession of drugs, a felony of the fifth degree.

The couple will be arraigned on Monday in Ironton Municipal Court.

Their case will be presented to a Lawrence County Grand Jury later this month.
