Over One Million Dollars Worth of Opioid Drugs Discovered in North Texas During Investigation
Dude thought he had a nice little plan going, but it all came to an end recently.
Denton police began an investigation when they found out an employee for an opiate-based prescription medication company was allegedly stealing shipments. Shipments would come up 'missing' when they would be headed to local pharmacies in the north Texas area.
The employee named Floyd Wagner was placed under police surveillance at his home and a storage unit that he owned. Police found the boxes that the drugs were shipped in were discarded by Wagner. Police would eventually send in an undercover officer to purchase the opioid drugs from Wagner. After that, search warrants were obtained for the home and storage unit.
Police discovered a motherload of opioid drugs. 120,000 pharmaceutical pills including Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Morphine, Fentanyl and Dilaudid were all found in the properties of Wagner. Police say they had a street value of around 1.5 million dollars. Officers also found 14 firearms, including six that were stolen, cash and hundreds of stolen items.
