The sale of prescription drugs has become a problem that is pervading states across the U.S. Drug crimes are no longer limited to cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and other illegal substances. Many people in New Jersey and across the country are developing serious addictions to prescription drugs, changing the face of the war on drugs.

A recent arrest at a New York pizzeria puts a whole new spin on the question, "What do you want on your pizza?" According to a report the 50-year-old owner of a pizzeria was arrested on Tuesday and charged with selling illegal prescription pills out of the restaurant.

According to the report, the arrest followed a three-month investigation. According to police, the man sold quantities of illegal Oxycodone hydrocholoride pills to an agent. The man has been charged with seven counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, a Class B felony; one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, a class B felony; and one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 4th Degree, a class C Felony.

Anyone facing similar charges is advised to contact an experienced attorney right away. A lawyer will evaluate every aspect of the matter for mitigating circumstances. Is this your first criminal offense? Did police have a proper search warrant when they confiscated the evidence? Were you a minor participant in a conspiracy? These are all questions that an attorney will ask while working to protect your rights if you face drug charges.
