Two Florida men have been charged with bringing OxyContin pain pills to Kentucky to sell.
Orville Dean Belcher and John J. Kuznicki were charged Wednesday.
An informant told authorities that Belcher had been bringing about 200 OxyContin pills to sell in Kentucky every two weeks for about six months, Richard Dalrymple, a federal task-force agent, said in a sworn statement.
Sheriff's deputies stopped Belcher and Kuznicki for a traffic violation on Jan. 31 as they were driving in Clay County. Police found 148 OcyContin pills in the car, Dalrymple said.
