BOSTON, GA (WALB) - After a five-year investigation, a south Georgia father and son plead guilty to drug charges.

James ‘Kevin' and Wayne Murphy were pharmacists at Boston Pharmacy.

Wayne Murphy pleaded guilty to smuggling prescription drugs into the state and repackaging them in Boston Pharmacy bottles.

His son pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute hydrocodone.

Thomas County Narcotics and Vice Division Commander Kevin Lee said, “People did not know exactly what they were getting when they were purchasing these pills.  And it's not just pills.  It was numerous medications.”

The Murphys will be sentenced January 14th and face up to 10-years in prison.
