A Boca Raton woman is one of nine defendants charged in an alleged oxycodone distribution ring between Florida and Delaware.
Leslie Tiner, 62, was arrested Wednesday in Delaware. She is charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute oxycodone.
U.S. Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer said the drug trafficking ring operated in Delaware and Florida for more than two years.
“This multistate investigation shows that Florida is still a major source for diverted pharmaceutical drugs to other states,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Mark Trouville said.
The indictment was filed Sept. 6 and unsealed Wednesday. If convicted, Tiner and the others face up to 20 years in prison.
Another defendant, Delaware resident John Pharis, 39, remains a fugitive.
