HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) -

Federal drug agents have apparently served a search warrant on a drug pharmacy in Huntington.

Drug Enforcement Agents and deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office were at Loper's Pharmacy, located at 116 US 69 North.

A DEA agent at the scene said the search was just routine and that they do the same searches for all pharmacies.

While it is not yet known why the agents were at the scene, the owner, Jerry Loper, was arrested on a charge of prescription fraud in Polk County in July 2011. Loper allegedly filled between 470 and 500 prescriptions for hydrocodone over the period of a month.

In addition to the pharmacy in Huntington, Loper owns a pharmacy in Livingston.
