LITTLE ROCK, AR – Dozens of people have been arraigned in a 78-count indictment charging 33 defendants with prescription drug charges. Twenty-seven of the individuals charged in the case appeared in court
on Thursday.

One defendant, Timmy Larvale McCain, 38, of Little Rock, was also charged with a weapons charge.

“According to the 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, non-medical use of prescription drugs is higher than abuse of cocaine, heroin and hallucinogens combined,” stated Christopher R. Thyer, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas. “Just because oxycodone is prescribed medically, doesn’t make it a safe drug to abuse. Arkansas has consistently ranked among the top 10 states with the highest rate of non-medical use of pain relievers by 12-25 year olds since state estimates first began in 2002. My office is committed to support the work of DEA and other law enforcement partners by prosecuting those who set-up and run illegal pill distribution networks. This 78-count indictment against distributors in a Little Rock-based network demonstrates that commitment.”

Thyer announced the charges, along with David Downing, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

“The abuse of prescription drugs, such as oxycodone, is a serious problem in our communities. All too often, this abuse leads to addiction, shattered lives, and even death. For the health and safety of our citizens, DEA and our local law enforcement partners will continue to target those who illegally obtain and distribute these potentially dangerous drugs. We hope that the arrests in this case serve as a reminder to anyone who might illegally divert pharmaceuticals that they will be held accountable for the harm they cause,” said Downing.

Thirty-one of the 33 defendants have been arraigned this week. These defendants have been released from federal custody.
