Oregon Attorney: 15 Indicted in Pain Drug Ring

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Fifteen people have been indicted in Oregon on federal charges that allege a multistate conspiracy to sell massive quantities of oxycodone pain pills and launder more than $1.7 million in drug money.

Federal authorities in Portland, Ore., said Thursday that participants used bank accounts in Florida, Nevada, Oregon and New York and bought expensive cars, including Bentleys and Mercedes-Benzes.

The U.S. attorney's office for Oregon says federal agents and state and local police served search warrants in Oregon, Washington and several other states, seizing bank accounts, guns, cash, crack cocaine, marijuana and thousands of suspected oxycodone pills.
