The Broward Sheriff's Office allegedly located 79 weapons - including a rocket launcher - inside the home of a man suspected of running a "pill mill," or illegal pain clinic.
Earlier this week, BSO raided the accused's pain clinic. The accused has been charged with 14 counts, including trafficking in oxycodone (OxyContin).
Trafficking in oxycodone is a very serious charge in the State of Florida that may require the assistance of an experienced trafficking attorney. All trafficking charges in Florida carry mandatory prison sentences. The number of mandatory prison years depends on the weight and the drug.
