Oneonta man charged for allegedly selling oxycodone powder

By WKTV News

OTSEGO COUNTY, N.Y. (WKTV) - An Oneonta resident has been charged after authorities say he sold oxycodone powder.

According to the Otsego County Sheriff's Office, Luke J. MacCracken, 21, of Oneonta was charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance following a joint narcotics investigation involving the Otsego County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division, Drug Enforcement Administration Albany District Office, Albany DEA Tactical Diversion Squad and the Oneonta Police Department Detective Bureau.

MacCracken was already being held at the Otsego County Correctional Facility on $25,000 bail from last October's raid on a County Route 4 Wells Bridge stash house where oxycodone powder, money and weapons were seized. Authorities said McCracken was charged with selling the narcotic drug last September in the Town of Otego during Operation Gold Rush.

He was arraigned this week by an Otsego Town Judge and remanded back to the Correctional Facility on an additional $25,000 bail.

If convicted, MacCracken faces an additional nine years in prison.

The Sheriff's Office said further arrests are expected in the case.
