Irvine police arrested a man for allegedly selling prescription drugs Friday, concluding a three-month investigation.
Detectives arrested Anaheim resident Anthony Risberg, 37, for sales and transportation of a controlled substance and weapons violations, police said. Police said detectives witnessed Risberg selling drugs and then arrested him. His bail was set at $25,000.
After the arrest, detectives searched Risberg's vehicle and found about 150 oxycodone pills, two loaded handguns and two magazines for a weapon not in the vehicle. Detectives later searched Risberg's residence and found additional weapons, including an illegally altered assault rifle.
Police believe Risberg obtained pills from someone with a prescription and sold them for profit. Police are not sure if those with prescriptions are obtaining the drugs illegally.
