Millen v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was convicted of three counts of possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule II controlled substance and one count of possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule III controlled substance.  He challenged a judgment of the Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia), which denied his motions to suppress and to dismiss or consolidate the indictments for three counts of possession with the intent to distribute oxycodone.  The trial court found that, because the Endocet tablets and the oxycodone tablets had different composition of pharmaceuticals and were found in two different pockets of appellant’s pants, those two charges were distinguishable.  The trial court distinguished the liquid oxycodone based on the fact that it was found in a “separate location.
