Man Pleads Guilty to $2Mil Drug Scheme

A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to plotting to illegally sell more than $2 million in prescription drugs, including drugs used to treat HIV.

A police officer went to Edison Rosario's apartment in Fairview last March to investigate a complaint from a neighbor about a noxious odor. Large amounts of the drugs were uncovered, leading to his arrest.

Earlier reports said Rosario, two other men, and a 17-year-old were in possession of $5 million worth of prescription meds, including 15,000 bottles of Percocet, Oxycontin, and other painkillers.

Rosario entered his plea Tuesday in U.S. district court in Newark, the Associated Press reports. He faces up to five years in prison; he will be sentenced May 23.
