Iowa pharmacy owner indicted in missing pills case

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The owner of a well-known Des Moines pharmacy has been indicted on 16 federal charges in connection to the disappearance of nearly 700,000 pills of addictive painkillers.

Mark Graziano appeared in federal court Wednesday in Des Moines. The 52-year-old has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to distribute drugs, wire fraud and tax evasion.

Another man, Andrew Michael Enloe, is accused of helping Graziano. He has pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute drugs.

Authorities raided Graziano's store, Bauder Pharmacy, in 2012 after an informant said Graziano illegally sold hydrocodone pills. Graziano denies the claims.

The Iowa Board of Pharmacy revoked Graziano's license last year. The store, co-owned by his sister, is banned from dispensing addictive drugs.

A trial date has been set for June 2.
