Oxy2SEATTLE — The owner of a South Seattle non-profit club was arrested Monday night for allegedly distributing illegal prescription drugs at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.

Seattle police first investigated the owner of the Nomadian Community Resource Center on South Orcas Street in Seattle after complaints that illegal gun drugs were being sold during AA meetings. The complaints alleged the 64-year-old dealer would only sell drugs to those who became a member of the NCRC or attended AA meetings as a means to limit his clientele.

The man reportedly sold prescription drugs to undercover cops on no less than five occasions throughout the investigation. He allegedly obtained subscriptions for Oxycodone from buying the drug off people who were legally prescribed the medication.

The man was arrested at the club Monday night. He is being held in King County Jail, and will face charges for distribution of Oxycodone, a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

    How come child abusers and rapists don't get the same harsh penalty: 20 years in prison and a million-dollar fine? I'm tired of hearing about rapists getting out of prison in just 5-6 years, if that. Another example of our so-called 'justice' system.

    Was this 'news article' written by a nine year old? 'Subscription?!' Seriously?! Firstly, they're called PRESCRIPTIONS and secondly, if you 'buy them off people,' then it's neither a prescription nor a subscription. Good grief. Also, 'illegal gun drugs' – what the hell is that? Q13, you need to hire better editors.
