Sometimes when police officers suspect that a person is selling illegal drugs, the officers will set up a controlled buy. However, despite the results of the operation, the person allegedly selling the drugs is innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty in court. A man who works as both a firefighter and part-time emergency room nurse has recently been arrested in Florida on drug charges for allegedly possessing and selling prescription drugs.
The Narcotics Division of Pinellas County began investigating the man on July 11 after receiving a tip. The tip claimed that the man was selling prescription drugs in the parking lot of the hospital where he worked as an ER nurse. Later the same day, an officer supposedly went undercover in order to initiate a controlled buy from the man.
