Portsmouth Police were called to a 17th St. apartment in Portsmouth where a woman advised them that a woman and a man with the street name "B" were at her apartment and stole a pill bottle that contained 28 5-milligram oxycodone pills.
During police officers' investigation, BrandonEiland, Raymond Wilkins and Jessica Mounts were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and persistence.
A warrant check revealed there was a warrant for Mounts' arrest by Portsmouth Municipal Court for failing to complete court-ordered community service.
The arrestees were transferred to the Scioto County Jail.
Reports stated that Eiland asked deputies for medicine in his coat pocket.
Deputies reportedly checked Eiland's coat pocket and found 12 small white pills.
The deputies took custody of Eiland's coat along with other property in the receiving area.
A call by a deputy to the SOMC pharmacy resulted in the pills being identified as 5-milligram oxycodone pills.
The deputy then called the PPD and advised them of the discovery.
Police responded to the jail, impounded the pills and charged Eiland with possession of a schedule II drug and theft of drugs, reports said.
The final charges were: Eiland, 25, of 1111 Olmstead Ave., Columbus -- disorderly conduct, persistence, possession of drugs-schedule i or II substance and theft of drugs; Wilkins, 29, of 115 Boundary St. Apt. 8 -- disorderly conduct and persistence; and Mounts, 23, 615 Brown St. -- disorderly conduct, persistence and failure to appear-issuance of a warrant.
