West Virginia man admits obtaining oxycodone by fraud

BECKLEY (AP) — A Beckley man has admitted to having his girlfriend steal prescription drugs for him.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 30-year-old Daniel Michael Koehler pleaded guilty in federal court in Beckley to obtaining oxycodone by fraud.
