A 10-month investigation into a drug ring in which suspects used fraudulent prescriptions to get thousands of oxycodone pills from Apple Pharmacy in Englewood has yielded more than two dozen arrests, Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said Friday.
The SCSO’s “Operation Bad Apple” investigation has led to charges against 29 individuals
from Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto and Manatee counties who obtained oxycodone, a pain-relief drug that Knight called “synthetic heroin,” from the pharmacy at 500 N. Indiana Ave. Twenty-eight are in custody.
