Plymouth: Man Facing Charges after Allegedly Ordering Oxycodone on Dark Web

A Plymouth man is facing drug charges after he allegedly ordered trafficking amounts of Oxycodone pills over the dark web.

Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz says 29-year-old Andrew King was arraigned in Plymouth District Court on charges that include Class A Trafficking Oxycodone, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Subsequent Offense Heroin, and Possession of a Controlled Substance, Subsequent Offense Suboxone and Subutex.

King was arrested following an investigation that began in February by State Troopers assigned to the Commonwealth Interstate Narcotics Reduction Enforcement Team. They were contacted by homeland security after a series of packages were intercepted from Columbia, addressed to Bettencourt Road in Plymouth.

The package contained 100 40-milligram oxycode pills. An investigation showed that suspicious packages were also sent to that address. Investigators arranged a delivery of the package…where a man identified by police as King accepted the package.

Police obtained a search warrant, searched the home, and found the package, heroin, Suboxone and Subutex.
