A Coldiron man is facing multiple charges including trafficking after allegedly being found in possession of oxycodone.

According to the complaint, a detective for Kentucky State Police DE/SI East states that between April 10 and June 16, Freeman knowingly trafficked in controlled substances. Freemen was allegedly in possession of two small round white tablets, bearing the markings “M” on one side and “05 score 52” on the other. The pills were not in a proper container. The Kentucky State Police Forensic Lab confirmed the item contained the schedule II narcotic oxycodone.
