MARION, VA -

A police chief in southwestern Virginia has been charged with drug distribution.

Marion Police Chief Michael Dean Roberts was arrested Thursday morning on one count of distribution of a controlled substance.

An affidavit filed by a federal agent in U.S. District Court in Abingdon accuses the 54-year-old Saltville resident of selling the prescription painkiller Lortab to a cooperating witness.

Court records do not list an attorney for Roberts, and no hearing date has been scheduled.

Roberts did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages seeking comment.
