Authorities arrested a Punta Gorda man yesterday for selling pills.

The sheriff’s office says 66-year-old Norman O’Hara met undercover operatives in the Target parking lot in Murdock.

It claims O’Hara had agreed to sell pills to detectives.

He apparently sold one of them the pills for over $2,000.

Right after the sale, detectives took O’Hara into custody for sale and possession of a controlled substance.

The sheriff’s office says it got the money back. It has secured that with the pills as evidence.
