Ohio drug indictments tied to Florida 'pill mills'

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A grand jury has issued indictments against 14 people accused of being involved in a drug-trafficking ring that brought oxycodone from Florida "pill mills" for sale in central Ohio. Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said the organization was bringing drugs with a street value of between $10,000 and $20,000 to Ohio every week for at least two years. The alleged ringleader, 29-year Michael Berry, and 13 members of the organization were arrested Nov. 17. Authorities seized 17 guns, including three assault rifles, a bulletproof vest, more than $8,000 in cash and 900 pills with a street value of $27,000. Arraignments were expected Monday in court in Columbus.
Attorney information for Berry was not available.
