• Charlotte pharmacist arrested, accused of drug trafficking

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The longtime owner of a Charlotte pharmacy has been arrested on drug charges.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have charged 65-year-old Carl Wayne Craddock of Matthews with two counts of trafficking opium or heroin; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver fentanyl; and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver oxycodone.

    An arrest warrant says one of the trafficking charges involves the delivery of oxycodone to a "confidential police source" April 8. Another warrant says the other trafficking charge accuses Craddock of possession of the oxycodone.

    Craddock was arrested last week. He is scheduled to appear in court June 18.

    He would not talk about the charges Tuesday. His pharmacy is still open.
