Officials: N.Y. Ice Cream Truck Sold Oxycodone Pills

Authorities say a New York City man sold highly addictive black-market prescription painkillers out of his ice cream truck.

Louis Scala is accused of being one of the leaders of a Staten Island drug trafficking ring that illegally sold nearly 43,000 oxycodone pills -- worth $1 million on the street -- between 2009 and 2010.

Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan says the ice cream truck was a "primary sales point."

Authorities say the 29-year-old Scala doled out treats to children and then sold oxycodone to adult customers.

Scala is among more than a dozen people suspected of being members of the drug gang who were arraigned Tuesday and Wednesday.

He was released on $15,000 bail. The voice mail on his phone wasn't set up to take messages Thursday.
