Agents shut down illegal pharmacies in western Sussex
Patrons of Taco Town could get more than tacos at the Frankford store, say agents who broke up illegal pharmacies at several convenience stores Aug. 26 and arrested two Ocean City residents.
Agents with the Delaware Division of Alcohol and Tobacco with the help of Delaware State Police, Milton police, Delaware Probation and Parole and the state Division of Professional Regulation searched several convenience stores in Selbyville and Frankford, said John Yeomans, director of the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement.
Inside, Yeomans said, agents found prescription drugs and syringes for sale in an illegal pharmacy setting. Agents also found more than 500 bootleg DVDs and about $88,000 in cash.

His bail was $5,500 unsecured.
