Illegal Drug Sales in Franklin County

Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland says illegal prescription drug sale and use in Franklin County has become “incredible.” Five were indicted Wednesday for trafficking in controlled prescription drugs, which has become commonplace with about 35 charged with the same offense in the last six months. Cleveland said initially he was inclined to go easy on the prescription pill trafficking charges to get the files off his hands, “but the more you look at it, the angrier you become.”
