“Script King” Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges

STROUDSBURG — Federal agents named him the “Script King,” and on Thursday, John Romangnolo pleaded guilty in Monroe County.

Romagnolo, from Cresco, was accused of flooding pharmacies in the Stroudsburg area with hundreds of fake prescriptions for painkilers then had a bunch of dealers sell them.

The story was first reported back in March of last year, when the prescription drug ring from the Poconos to New York was busted. Romagnolo pleaded guilty Thursday to two felony charges.

According to his defense attorney, about a dozen other charges were dropped because Romagnolo has been cooperating with authorities.  He could face anywhere from six to 35 years behind bars.

Romagnolo is free on bail.  His sentencing date has yet to be set.
