Prosecutors charge 33 people in oxycodone ring – KSPR

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say more than 30 people have been charged in an oxycodone drug ring in Arkansas.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports Monday’s announcement of the 33 people charged with conspiring to distribute oxycodone includes former Razorback and NFL running back Cedric Cobbs.

He’s also been charged with using a communication device in furtherance of drug trafficking. A message was left with a federal district court official seeking attorney information for Cobbs.

Authorities say the group conspired to sell pills between June 2013 and Oct. 7 of this year. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office says federal and local law enforcement seized large quantities of pills and $21,000 from the operation.
