Puyallup smokeshop operators arrested for drugs
Federal authorities arrested five people and issued a warrant for a sixth person in connection with the alleged sale of drugs at smokeshops on the Puyallup Reservation in Washington.

Authorities say Billy Miranda Flores, 40, of Puyallup, and his father, Bill Celeya Flores, 59, sold OxyContin at the Indian Smoke Shop and the Little Red Smoke Shop. They sold hundreds of pills every day for up to $80 each, according to authorities.

The arrests came after an 18-month investigation.
