A Murray man faces drug trafficking and theft charges after reportedly stealing and selling drugs from a local CVS Pharmacy. Police say 21-year-old John Wheatley stole over 4,800 hydrocodone pills from December to February while employed at the pharmacy. He then sold the estimated $2,500 dollars in pills in over 200 transactions. Wheatley is scheduled to face a grand jury later this month.
