Two teens were nabbed by Putnam County Sheriff's deputies for dealing prescription drugs and LSD throughout the county, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy was able to make contact with them and arrange for the purchase of Xanax pills on several occasions, the department said.

On Dec. 21, members of the Sheriff’s road patrol took the male into custody in the area of his Southeast residence after a complaint of suspicious activity. While being booked into the Putnam County Correctional facility it was discovered that he was also in possession of 24 doses of LSD.

The male teen was charged with two felony counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance, two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, one felony count of criminal possession of a controlled substance and one felony count of promoting prison contraband.

He was committed to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $20,000 cash bail.

On Jan. 11, the female was taken into custody by members of the NEU during a traffic stop on Old Route 6 in the Town of Southeast.

She was also charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the and was remanded to the Putnam County Correctional facility in lieu of $2,500 cash bail.
