BETHEL - Three people have been charged with drug counts connected to the sale of oxycodone in Bethel and Alaska State Troopers said charges are pending against three others.
Troopers on Friday served two search warrants and seized 60 tablets of oxycodone, a narcotic and painkiller, and $8,000 in drug proceeds.
Tablets are designed to be swallowed whole and digested over 12 hours to keep a steady state of painkiller in the bodies of seriously ill patients. Abusers crush tablets to produce a heroin-like high with the dose delivered all at once.
Troopers said the street value of the tablets is more than $12,000.
Kristen Inman, 35, and Connor Burke, 19, were charged with one count of drug misconduct.
William Ramsey, 25, of Anchorage was charged with two counts.
