Four arrested in Perry County drug investigation
A six-month investigation into illegal prescription drug sales in Perry County ended Tuesday, resulting in charges against five people.
Four Perryville, Mo., residents were arrested and a fifth person was being sought as a result of the Perry County sheriff's department and Southeast Missouri Drug Task Force's operation, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
Michael V. Milliano, 51, and Donald Barton Sr., 71, were each charged with one count of felony distribution of a controlled substance.
Michelle L. Parnell, 41, was charged with two counts of felony distribution of a controlled substance.
All three were arrested Tuesday and issued a $50,000 cash-only bond, the release stated.
A fourth person, Letty M. Limbaugh, 47, was originally charged with felony distribution of a controlled substance, but she has since pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Sentencing was scheduled before Circuit Judge William Syler at 9 a.m. March 6.
A Perry County sheriff's sergeant would not provide information on the fifth person being sought.
