“These counterfeit pills posed a particular danger to our communities, as they are comparably 50 times more potent than prescription oxycodone and present a substantially higher risk of overdose,” Pak said in a statement.
According to the release from the U.S. District Attorney’s office, Sellers sold approximately 100 pills for $1,400 in cash from her Roswell townhouse on Weatherburne Drive to a confidential source working with the DEA on June 13, 2017.
Later that night, DEA agents searched Sellers's townhouse and found a .45 caliber Glock handgun, two magazines and approximately 100 more counterfeit pills concealed in a Rite Aid bottle. DEA agents arrested Sellers that night.
A DEA lab test revealed that the pills contained furanyl-fentanyl, U-47700 and fentanyl, none of which are in legitimate oxycodone tablets. The DEA said Sellers’ pills looked like 30 milligram Roxicodone tablets, except they were a lighter blue than usual.
Sellers plead guilty to the charges. After her prison sentence, she will serve three years of supervised release.
