Flores also faces one count of possession with intent to distribute pharmaceuticals, and Horn faces one count of theft by receiving stolen property over $1500.

36-year-old Shawn Stacy of Scottsbluff is facing a single count of distribution of methamphetamine.

WING Drug Task Force Commander Dana Korell says more arrests are expected in this investigation.
