A Christian County grand jury on Friday indicted three people in connection with a scheme to mail large quantities of prescription pain pills from Florida to Kentucky, state Attorney General Jack Conway said.
Those indicted were Peter Nibert, 27, of Pasco County, Fla.; Scotty Dewayne Highsmith, 36, and Cary Alder, 24, both of Hopkinsville. They were indicted on counts of conspiracy to traffic in controlled substances.
The indictments were the result of an ongoing investigation conducted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Christian County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with the Pasco County, Fla., Sheriff's Office. Conway's office will handle prosecution of the case at the request of Christian County Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor.
