A four-state drug bust was centered Wednesday in Little Rock, Arkansas.
It was one of the final stages of a nearly yearlong investigation called Operation Pilluted. The operation included Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, and Mississippi. All in an effort to target the illegal diversion of pharmaceutical drugs. The raid is part of what the feds are calling the largest prescription drug investigation in the nation’s history.
After raiding medical clinics, pharmacies and other locations, DEA agents arrested 48 people Wednesday 22 of which in were in Louisiana.
