Two Wilmore men were charged last week on federal drug charges, Nicholasville police said Tuesday.
Anthony James, 28, and Charles Powell, 60, were charged Friday with federal conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, police said in a news release.
James and Powell went to Tennessee to obtain prescription pills and brought them back to Central Kentucky for sale, police said.
The investigation is continuing, and police said they expect more charges to follow.
