Police Arrest Two OC Residents for Illegally Selling Prescription Drugs

SELBYVILLE and FRANKFORD, Del – Officials with the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security said two Ocean City residents have been arrested for illegally selling prescription drugs at local convenience stores.

Investigators said Oscar B. Jimenez, 35, and Isela Delgado, 31, are charged with operating a pharmacy without a license and delivery of non-controlled prescription medication, among other charges.

The arrests come after a month-long investigation by the Delaware Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Agents, Delaware State Police, the Department of State Division of Professional Regulation, Probation and Parole and the Milton Police Department.

Investigators said the agencies conducted search warrants at several convenience stores in Selbyville and Frankford. They searched La Sierra on West Church Street and Danny's Pizzeria on Main Street in Selbyville, as well as Taco Town on DuPont Boulevard in Frankford.

During the search, officials said they found prescription type drugs, more than 500 bootleg DVDs,and $88,000 in cash. Investigators said they seized all those items.

Jimenez was arrested at La Sierra and Delgado was taken into custody at Taco Town on Tuesday.
According to Delgado, this is a common occurrence.

"I've been a year in the business so when the whole seller comes to you they have like a booklet and they give you a list of medicines that people have asked for it and it's like whenever they come and sell you a product and you decide to get that," she explained. 

Delgado also said she didn't realize what she was doing was illegal. These drugs are allowed to be sold in Mexico, and she said people expect to be able to buy them without having to get health insurance.

 Police said they will look into finding a whole seller to determine the source of the illegal drugs. According to Lieutenant Kevin Jones of the Delaware Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement, they came upon the situation by chance. 

"It was actually probably a well kept secret," he said. "It was something that nobody really knew about, we certainly didn't know about it, one of our agents stumbled upon it in an unrelated investigation and it blew up into where we are today."

Jones also said it's a good thing they finally found these illicit drugstores.

"It's a real public safety concern for people to be able to just go in and buy prescription medications without any medical advice before doing that. It can definitely lead to health issues."

Jimenez was held on $5,500 unsecured bond. Delgado was held on $4,100 unsecured bond.

    Crews Cleanup Chesapeake Bay Debris Following Record Rainfall

    Earlier this Summer, flooding in areas up north has brought tons of freshwater and debris down through the Susquehanna River. The debris passes through the Conowingo Dam and ends up in the Chesapeake Bay. Most of the debris consists of large tree trunks and limbs. Now, Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says a lot has been cleared in the upper Bay, but four months later, the cleanup continues.
