The abuse of prescription pain pills continues to run rampant in our state. As Bay County Sheriff's Investigators continue to fight the problem, they arrest four more people from Miami Saturday.

A week long undercover investigation led to the arrest of four people and a large amount of Oxycodone pills. Deputies served a search warrant at a motel in Callaway Saturday.

They found more than 1,300 pills and a small amount of heroin and cocaine. The four suspects are facing drug-related charged including trafficking in Oxycodone, which carries a possible 25-year prison sentence.

The sheriff's office will continue to work with the Miami Regional Drug Enforcement strike force to try and find out who helped supply the drug-dealers with the pills.

    Well beachmonster, got news for you, ridilin, contains amphetamine, so all that has to be done is to refile the charges, the charge for trafficking ridilin is the same as if it were methamphetamine. So know what you speak of before you speak it.

    The pill problem in this area is only going to continue getting worse!! What options do people who are addicted have? Unless you have suffered through this addiction there is no need to comment on that because you have NO IDEA what its like. Until we get some methadone clinics or free suboxone clinics in this area nothing is going to change. But this overrated sheriff we wont allow it my company has tried. He can't make as many arrest that way. If he was more concerned about peoples well being he wouldnt have made the threats to arrest our employees when they were there just to try to get the approval to open a clinic

    Actually, the original story did say 23rd Street; it appears WJHG caught and corrected the error. I almost posted the same comment when the story was first posted but figured they'd catch and correct it, so chose not to do so.

    Stay on your toes,for the pictures of the pills u show are actually ritalin and not oxycontin,meaning if your charges when it comes court time states they were possessing oxycontin,and the evidence is ritalin instead,they will have just beat the charges on a technical loop hole,of course the cocaine and heroin part of these chARGES will still stand providing the charges filed on them that the evidence is actually cocaine and heroin and not something else.
