Operation UNITE gets indictments for a dozen suspected pill pushers
A dozen individuals suspected of illegally selling prescription pills have been indicted by a Morgan County grand jury. Sealed indictments were released Tuesday, Dec. 6, following an undercover investigation by Operation UNITE into drug trafficking in Morgan County that began this past summer. At least several cases involved the individuals traveling out-of-state to obtain the pills, said Dan Smoot, deputy director of Operation UNITE. Most of the drugs were either Oxycodone or Hydrocodone pain medications. UNITE detectives, along with the Kentucky State Police and West Liberty Police Department, set out to serve the warrants Tuesday morning.
