A Fayette County man is facing charges selling prescription drugs, following his arrest Tuesday in Montgomery.

According to a press release from Fayette County Sheriff Steve Kessler, at approximately 3:47 p.m. on Tuesday, Detective-Sergeant S. M. Gray and Detective-Corporal R. K. Perdue were conducting a drug investigation in Montgomery.

During the investigation, the officers received a tip that there was a man attempting to sell drugs in the area of 60 4th Street. The detectives went to the scene to investigate, and located a man matching the tipster's description.

While speaking with the man, identified as Michael Lee Chadwell, detectives found a small cylinder concealed within his clothing that contained two different types of prescription medication.
