KANSAS: Pills Seized in October 2018 Were Counterfeits Testing Shows

Thirty-one light blue pills seized in a drug investigation were identified by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation as counterfeits made with fentanyl in the first week of June, 2019. The pills were marked with the markings of legitimate oxycodone.

The Parson Sun reports that the pills were discovered in a Parsons, KS, motel room on October 31, 2018, among other illicit drugs and weapons. The occupant of the room, Victor A. Lindberg, of Mesa, Arizona was charged with possession of oxycodone, which was dismissed in a plea. Another man, Cornel A. Owens, of Iola, eluded police and is wanted for distribution of drugs, criminal possession of a firearm as well as fleeing.
