MOUNDSVILE, W.Va. — State police are investigating the disappearance of a box of prescription painkillers from the Marshall County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff John Gruzinksas tells WTOV-TV of Steubenville, Ohio, that the drugs went missing from Chief Deputy Kevin Cecil's office at the end of January while Cecil was out of the office. The box contained fentanyl patches, a painkiller intended for cancer patients.

Gruzinksas says the drugs had been turned over to his office. The sheriff's office planned to turn the drugs over to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
