Avon man accused of selling oxycodone, hydrocodone

AVON — An Avon man is accused of selling oxycodone and hydrocodone pills after more than 400 prescription pills were discovered at his home, Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said in a release.

Deputies executed a search warrant on Friday at 148 Avon Valley Road, he said.

Daryl “Poochie” Searles, 56, was arrested on felony charges of trafficking in scheduled drugs, oxycodone and hydrocodone, and unlawful trafficking in marijuana, the release said.

Deputies also found more than 1½ pounds of processed marijuana and $100,000 in cash and firearms, Nichols said.

The oxycodone and hydrocodone totaled 9,252 milligrams, he said.

Nichols has scheduled a news conference Tuesday at the Franklin County Jail in Farmington on the drug bust.

Searles was released Saturday on $2,000 cash bail. He is scheduled to appear in a Farmington court June 3.

Where the hell did the pills come from????????????

The fact that he was selling the pills is one thing. Why isn't it ever reported where the pills came from? That is important information. Letting the guy out on $2000.00, is a joke. It's time these criminals start being treated a little more seriously. This isn't just affecting the drug abusing community out there. It's seriously affecting the lives of people suffering with chronic pain. It's getting almost imposable in some cases to get the pain medication we need any more because these dealers are getting the pills somewhere and doctors and legitimate patients seem to be a good target for law enforcement. As a result doctors wont prescribe pain meds any more, or they reduce the doses. This isn't just a crime against society, it's a crime against a small faction of the population who live day to day in excruciating pain, who by the way aren't committing any crimes.......,.............
