A 55-year-old Wautoma man is facing serious drug charges after he's accused of buying $20,000 worth of OxyContin during a drug sting last month.
Gerald Miller, 55, is charged with solicitation delivery of Schedule I or II narcotics and possession of narcotic drugs.
According to the criminal complaint, an confidential informant told investigators Miller is the former Waushara County EMS coordinator.
Court documents said Miller was arrested in the Wautoma Shopko parking lot on July 30 after meeting two undercover agents. Miller reportedly paid $20,000 for 600 OxyContin tablets. According to drugs.com, OxyContin is powerful painkiller.
According to the criminal complaint, during the sale Miller indicated the pills would be for personal use.
Miller is free on a $2,000 cash bond and is expected to return to court on Sept. 10 for a clerical court proceeding.
If convicted on all counts, Miller faces a maximum sentence of 9 1/2 years in prison.
