Man accused of trying to distribute prescription drugs
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City man is accused of trying to distribute tens of thousands of prescription pills he acquired from India and Thailand.
Brian S. Hoskins is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance and acting as a wholesale drug distributor without a license.
Court records say investigators seized at an airport a package with a controlled substance that was being shipped from India and addressed to Hoskins.
Police say they watched Hoskins arrive at a Kansas City post office and pick up several parcels he put into his backpack. Hoskins allowed an officer to search his backpack, which had about 8,400 pills. Around 20,000 pills also were found at his home.
It wasn't immediately known if Hoskins has an attorney.
