    Perhaps that was all he was caught with, this time. Maybe he just finished selling off the rest?Is he known as a dealer?Release his name!I don't care what amount lowlifes like this are caught with as long as they get caught .These are the same lowlifes who sell pills to our children and make them addicts. Parents would be shocked if they knew how many kids are crushing pills and snorting them. Maybe they need search warrants and search any property he may own or his friends too. He is just one link in the chain. I personally thank the police, job well done.

    14 pills is possession with intent to traffic? seems to me any reasonable person could think that just for personal use, how many pills could you even get from a prescription? unless they have him actually selling to a narc or something reghardless it seems like a pretty small result. If he doens't just plead guilty I can see this just being a waste of time and money
