Three Charged in Oxycontin Sales

Police arrested three people allegedly involved in selling prescription drugs.

Three men were arrested Tuesday after police said they were involved in a scheme to sell the prescription medication Oxycontin.

Following an investigation by the Prince William County Police Street Crimes Unit, officers searched the home of Jacob Michael Gaudreau, 23, at 12647 Castle Ct., where they said they found marijuana, Oxycontin pills and cash.

Gaudreau and another Dale City man, Nicholas James Carroll, 21, of 13010 Kidwell Dr., were each charged with two counts of conspiracy to distribute a schedule I or II narcotic.

A third man, Joseph Winslow, 34, of 2119 Spring Creek Cir. in Palm Bay, Fla., was charged with two counts of distribution of a schedule I or II narcotic.

All three men are scheduled to appear in court on April 13. Bond information was not released.

I know Mr. Winslow. He has always been a very nice, generous, helpful and polite young man. He has a good heart. He got addicted to prescription drugs a while back. Its really sad what addiction does to a person. It is of course his own fault for doing such a stupid thing but I also blame the doctor. The doctor he went to in Florida writes prescriptions for all kinds of things like the oxycontin as well as zanax, somas and other similar drugs like he is handing out candy. The doctor's partner lost his license and is in prison because some of his patients overdosed and died. I have called the Longwood, Florida police to report this Dr. Zelkowitz at least twice. I know more people than Mr. Winslow that get large amounts of drugs from this doctor. It doesn't seem like the police are able to prove anything at least not yet. I hope they do. Dr. Zelkowitz should lose his license and be in prison right next to Mr. Winslow.
