MOUNTAIN VIEW – A former resident of Mountain View has been arrested on suspicion of a company selling oxycodone pills, police said.

On Nov. 2, searchers learned that the person offered to sell oxycodone pills over the Internet, a Mountain View police department said in a press release on Tuesday.

Police said these types of pills have been linked to fentanyl overdoses in Santa Clara County and the Bay Area.

The man was arrested on Nov. 3 in the 2400 block of Charleston Road in Mountain View. Police said a search of his vehicle found several bottles of different pills and cash.

The man was sentenced to Santa Clara County Jail on charges of possessing a controlled substance for sale, an offer to sell or transport it for sale, bringing the controlled substance into prison, and five promises, police said.
