Prescription drug ring busted in Orange


A large prescription drug ring has been busted in Orange.

An Orange County grand jury issued 23 indictments on ten people accused with being in the ring. The indictments came after an extensive investigation.

The Orange Police Department Friday arrested nine people on a multiple-count indictment.  One person is still at large.

Officers say the nine people who were arrested got prescription drugs from a local doctor's office.

An office employee is accused of forging the prescriptions from the doctor's office and giving the drugs to a ring of people.

Investigators say the doctor was not involved in the ring.
