A Penn Hills resident is among 18 defendants who pleaded guilty earlier this week to participation in an oxycodone trafficking ring, according to U.S. Justice Department officials.

Ryan R. Beharry, 27, of Briarwood Drive, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone.

The trafficking ring, which includes residents of Pittsburgh, West Mifflin, Carnegie, Finleyville, South Park, McKeesport, Dravosburg and Greenock, is alleged to have obtained more than 54,000 oxycodone pills.

Beharry was among a group of five defendants already sentenced. He will be imprisoned for 16 months, followed by three years' supervised release, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

Eleven different law enforcement agencies cooperated in the investigation.
