Kentucky man sentenced in burglary of Georgia pharmacy

WAYCROSS, Ga. (AP) – Federal prosecutors say a man who burglarized a Georgia pharmacy and sought to sell stolen pills in Kentucky has been sentenced to prison.

Authorities said Tuesday that 33-year-old Bradley Williams of Russell Springs, Kentucky was sentenced to 151 months in prison after being convicted of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and hydrocodone.

Prosecutors say Williams and his co-conspirators traveled from Kentucky to Waycross, Georgia in January 2015 and broke into a local pharmacy.

Authorities say the group stole more than 9,000 oxycodone and hydrocodone pills and planned to sell them in Russell County, Kentucky.

Officials say Williams has also been linked to similar burglaries in other states.

Authorities say two other Kentucky men, 37-year-old Stephen Williams and 34-year-old Shawn Weddle, have also been sentenced in the burglary.
