Prescription drug bust leads to Destin woman

The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force (DTF) has concluded a joint investigation with the DEA in connection to a drug trafficking ring operating in Northwest Florida.

In January 2013, Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers reported a tip to the DTF that a head nurse at a Fort Walton Beach area doctor’s office was involved with trafficking prescription narcotic medications.

The investigation led to suspect Wendy Cagle, who was found to be calling in multiple unauthorized prescriptions for controlled substances to various pharmacies for individuals that she knew personally and who were not under medical care.

Investigators say trafficking amounts of opiate pain killers (Hydrocodone) and Xanax (Alprazolam) were called in on multiple occasions for several people. In some cases, drugs were used as payment for co-conspirators.

The following people have been arrested:

1. CAGLE, Wendy Sue 5-21-74 of Destin: Trafficking in Hydrocodone over 28 grams

2. ADAMS JR, Daniel Ronnie 12-17-91 of Navarre: Conspiring to Obtain, Purchase, Transfer, Sell and/or distribute a Trafficking Amount of Hydrocodone.
