Four Florida men are in jail after being arrested recently. The men face criminal accusations including drug sales related crimes. The arrests and events that led up to them happened in Clay County.
Two Florida doctors are among the last of defendants who have gone through the trial process after police say that they committed drug related crimes while employed at a local 'pill-mill'. The doctors are accused of prescription drug crime relating to the use of oxycodone of their patients. In total, 32 people have been charged after a sting-style operation by police, a report indicates.
Florida officials say that they have arrested one of their most wanted persons. The arrest came recently in Brevard County. The man that was taken not custody was wanted on criminal charges that included drug possession and probation violation.
Readers in Florida know that prescription drug abuse has been a problem for officials here in the Sunshine State. However, one recent report notes that more people are turning away from prescription drugs and choosing to use of heroin instead. This has led to an increase in drug possession charges for this type of narcotic.
