A former church pastor and two other men have pleaded guilty in federal court to participating in a prescription pill trafficking ring that used a church as a stash house.

The Independent (http://bit.ly/MrcZbK) reports 42-year-old Scott Gilliam, 38-year-old Michael Scott Logan and his nephew, 28-year-old Brandon Logan, all of Olive Hill, entered guilty pleas last week to conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.

They are scheduled to be sentenced May 12.

Gilliam is the former pastor of Perry’s Branch Holiness Tabernacle. Investigators said the church building was used to store drugs. A search there turned up a cache of about 2,400 oxycodone tablets.

The operation was uncovered in June 2012 when officers made a traffic stop near Olive Hill and recovered 28 oxycodone pills from Brandon Logan’s vehicle.
