OXFORD – Following a joint investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and Oxford Police Department, officers carried out a search at a suspected drug dealer’s home in the village and removed a number of prescription narcotics last week.
Police arrested 39-year-old Kara L. Conklin and 42-year-old John Serrano at their 35 Greene St. address on May 20.
Sheriff’s Lt. Richard Cobb reported both defendants were charged with fourth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a Class C felony, for having 31 pills of Percocet.
Cobb said investigators believed the couple had been selling illegal substances from their residence for the last six months.
Oxford Police Chief Richard Nolan said the agencies were carrying out a months-long investigation into local drug activity which led officers to the Greene Street residence.
