A Ritchie County man was arrested Monday after deputies found methamphetamine and fentanyl.

Joseph Lott allegedly threw a bag containing methamphetamine, fentanyl and marijuana into the woods when deputies attempted to speak with him, according to the Ritchie County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies found a belt pouch in the woods, which Lott threw, containing a bag of marijuana, six bags of methamphetamine, and a bag of fentanyl. Lott also had $217 in his possession, deputies said.

Lott was not compliant with deputies' requests, according to court documents, and attempted to resist arrest.
