breakingnews surfky 300aUPDATE

 

OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/22/14) — After determining that more than 50,000 prescription pills were illegally distributed, authorities charged three Owensboro residents in connection with the Pharmacy Drug Trafficking Investigation.

The charges stemmed from an ongoing investigation that began about four months ago and culminated in a set of search warrants executed on two residences as well as a pharmacy on W. Byers Ave.

Kentucky State Police, Owensboro Police Street Crimes Unit and Drug Enforcement Agency authorities conducted a review of inventory and administrative records at Don and Daisy’s Pharmacy as part of the investigation.

Charged in the investigation were Haley Lyons, 26, Jessica Heichelbech, 26 and Carl Hanley, 32. Each was charged with three counts of second degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Heichelbach was also charged with third degree trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police said the charges against Heichelbach were “enhanced due to presence of a handgun.”
