A Gallon of Pills
- A Berwyn man and a woman were charged after authorities found a revolver and about 1,500 codeine pills on sale for $5 apiece at a corner store on the West Side last week, police said.
A revenue agent on a routine check to ensure cigarettes were being sold properly and not being bootlegged, stopped into the H & Y Food Store, 3825 W. Chicago Ave., about 1:30 p.m. Friday, according to police.
The agent subsequently spotted “in plain view of the public’’ a large candy jar behind the counter filled with about 1,500 hydrocodone pills, which contain codeine, police said. The pills were being sold for $5 each, and a revolver was also found at the store, according to police.
