Federal authorities say a Bridgeport man has been charged with possessing nearly 600 Oxycodone pills.

The U.S. attorney's office says 26-year-old Suhip E. Ebrahim was arrested Saturday on a charge of possession with intent to distribute Oxycodone.

Officers from the Ohio Valley Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and the Marshall County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force said Ebrahim was arrested in the Wheeling area in possession of the pills and more than $100,000.

Ebrahim made an initial appearance in federal court Saturday before U.S. Magistrate Judge James E. Seibert. He is currently being held without bond. Online court records do not show if he has a lawyer.

Two other defendants were also arrested. They are facing charges in state court.
