Drug bust severs another pill pipeline

An interstate drug pipeline responsible for bringing tens of thousands of prescription pills into Pike County was broken up with the arrest of three people Friday. Arrested on federal charges of conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone were: Donnie "DK" Kinder, 79, of Mouthcard; Brenda Jo Branham, 50, of Albion, Michigan; and Janice Carol Branham, 54, of Springport, Michigan. UNITE began its investigation in early October after receiving reports that Kinder was trafficking in a large quantity of pills.
