Charges sought in illegal drug sale 3.11.09

Charges are sought against a Morenci resident for the illegal sale of prescription medication.

A 38-year-old E. Congress Street resident, was involved in the sale of Vicodin pain medication. Two separate purchases were made by undercover agents in February.

The investigation began after police received reports of the woman selling drugs that she obtained with her own prescriptions.

Following a joint investigation by the Morenci Police Department and the OMNI 3 narcotics unit, the case was turned over to the prosecuting attorney’s office, seeking charges for the illegal delivery of prescription narcotics.

Two youths were removed from the home by Michigan Children’s Protective Services.
