MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and other law enforcement agencies conducted raids at a West Virginia home and two pharmacies as part of an investigation into pharmacy practices.

DEA spokesman Kevin McWilliams told The Dominion Post on Tuesday that Bruceton Pharmacy, American RX Pharmacy and a Morgantown home have been searched. McWilliams says nobody was arrested.

According to WDTV, the Bruceton Pharmacy is currently closed, with a sign directing customers to American RX. Employees at American RX are not able to comment at this time.

The West Virginia Secretary of State says the pharmacies are owned by Scott Tingler. The home is owned by Tingler Rental Properties LLC, which Tingler also owns.

McWilliams says the investigation is ongoing and no more details would be available Tuesday.
