    $150,200 of Oxycodone found after traffic stop


    STATESVILLE — A traffic stop Thursday on I-77 netted $150,000 worth of Oxycodone pills.

    The Interstate Criminal Enforcement Team of the Iredell County Sheriff's Office stopped a rented 2010 Chevy on I-77 near Union Grove around 8 a.m. Thursday.

    Officers became suspicious when the person who rented the vehicle was not present.

    The driver, John L. Sanders, 24, of Port Orange, Fla. told officer he was traveling to Virginia Beach to visit friends.

    According to a press release from the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, Sanders gave officers consent to search the vehicle.

    Officers trained in finding hidden compartments found two black packages concealed in the wheel well area. The packages were smeared with axle grease.

    The packages had a total of 1,502 Oxycodone pills with a street value of $100 each.

    Sanders was charged with trafficking by transportation opium, trafficking by possession of opium, maintaining a vehicle to keep/transport a controlled substance.

    He was placed in the Iredell County Detention Center under a 700,000 bond.

    100 a pop is way wrong; All SWIM knows is he's only seen the yellow 40s and the bluish green 80s before so SWIMs assuming they're 20s,40s and 80s or the're all oc80s from diff. companies.

    They weigh the pill on a scale rather than doing research and finding out whether or not it has 20,40,80mg of oxycodone. So the pills probably way more like 100mg each because of the time release. Saw it on oxycontin express afer they seized some oxycontins they actually weighed the fillers and all.

    This seizure wont do shit; pharmaceutical companies make more pills a year than can be counted. As long as it's prescription only they're always be a supply and demand on the black market.

    100 dollars a pill is rather unbelievable. However, this is still a lot of pills for one person to have without direct connections to a pharmaceutical company, it'll be interesting to see what direction the DEA takes this one.

    swim dosnt think any of those, certainly not all of them, are OC80s and that the police just said they were all worth 100 a piece so they would have more to charge the smuggler with
