Bucks County inmates to serve more time for drug conspiracy

March 9, 2017

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Two Bucks County prison inmates will serve additional jail time in connection with a conspiracy to have prescription drugs sold for them on the outside.

The Courier Times reports (http://bit.ly/2nizXUU ) 47-year-old Raymond Tuthill and 28-year-old Craig Thomas were sentenced this week to serve between four and 10 more years behind bars for masterminding the scheme.

Both men pleaded guilty to charges including possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy.

Tuthill and Thomas arranged for two co-conspirators on the outside to sell Tuthill’s prescriptions for the painkiller Oxycodone and the anti-anxiety medication Clonazepam.

Prosecutors say Thomas added a friend to Tuthill’s prison visitor list, and the friend took Tuthill’s ID and prescription slips during a February 2016 visit.

The friend denied any role in the conspiracy.
