ABINGDON — A police chief in southwestern Virginia has been charged with drug distribution.
Marion Police Chief Michael Dean Roberts was arrested this 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.

Can we trust those who have been sworn to protect us anymore? It looks like we need new standards.
