A New Castle man admitted in federal court on Tuesday that he ran prescription drugs and money between Pennsylvania and Florida as part of an oxycodone ring between September 2008 and June 2011.

David Wooley, 35, pleaded guilty to participating in a drug conspiracy. In September 2010, he was stopped by police in North Carolina who discovered $158,409 in cash hidden inside a car door, prosecutors say. The ring bought oxycodone in Florida for $14 a pill and sold it in New Castle for up to $25 a pill, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab scheduled Wooley's sentencing for Aug. 20.
