A pair of pharmacists in Thomasville have been arrested and charged on federal drug charges following a Wednesday raid. Thomas County sheriff’s deputies and DEA agents went into Murphy Drugs after getting a tip that illegal activity was occurring at the business.
The owner, 37-year old Jeffery Cox Jr. is charged with unlawful possession of Oxycodone. A pharmacist, Karen Dunlap, faces charges of distributing a controlled substance without a prescription.
Officials say more arrests are possible, and that the pharmacists were allegedly filling bottles with Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Adderall and other drugs without prescriptions. Additional charges against Cox are pending.
