Nurse's aide charged with selling client's painkillers in Adams


ADAMS -- A nurse's aide is facing charges for allegedly selling oxycodone that was prescribed for a client in the parking lot of a local pharmacy, according to police.

Cheryl Herring, 41, of Summer Street, Adams, was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Saturday outside the Rite Aid on Columbia Street following a two-month investigation, according to Adams Police Detective Lawrence Ordyna.

Herring allegedly was in possession of 65 5-milligram oxycodone pills valued at $390, and charged with class B drug distribution and conspiracy to violate drug law.

Two North Adams men, Carl Moon, 54, and William Hurley, 59, both of Ashland Street, were arrested after they were allegedly observed purchasing the pills from Herring. They each had 25 oxycodone pills with a street value of $150, and were charged with class B drug possession and conspiracy to violate drug laws, Ordyna said.

All three were released on personal recognizance and scheduled to be arraigned June 3 in Northern Berkshire District Court.
