Four people have pleaded guilty to federal charges of distributing drugs through the internet. Eldon residents Mark and Nance Fitzgerald produced 20 to 22 prescriptions a week for 80 to 200 customers. The federal prosecutor says they took in $3,000 to $4,000 a month.
A third person, Yvonna Bays of Waynesville admits she helped distribute hydrocodone through two websites she co-owned. The fourth person, Clifton Thibodeaux Junior of St. Robert, admits he concealed information from investigators.
Earlier this year, a St. Robert Couple pleaded guilty in the same case.
