Six people from Dayton are facing federal charges in an alleged prescription drug scheme.
Investigators said they bought dozens of forged painkiller prescriptions, filled them at pharmacies in the area and sold most of the pills on the streets.
The prescriptions were for Oxycodone, Percocet and Vicodin, according to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office.
DeWine identified the four who have been arrested and arraigned in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio as:
- Sandy Bryson, 51
- Candice Crouch, 20
- Dustin Crouch, 26
- Mandy McGhee, 37
The fifth suspect is in custody on unrelated charges and the sixth suspect is under arrest, according to a news release. Their names were not immediately released.
They face charges of conspiracy to possess drugs with intent to distribute.
The investigation was part of the ongoing “Operation Safety Net,” according to DeWine and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio Carter Stewart.
