Layug interviewed an adult male and an adult female as well as two juveniles. It was learned that one of the juveniles in the residence had discovered a plate with powdery substances on it and told the adult female.

Mr. Scruggs identified the pill and the blue powder on the plate as Xanax and stated that he did not have a prescription for the medication. The white powder Mr. Scruggs identified as Opana.
