A pharmacist and two others are facing charges in Fort Bend County after investigators broke up an alleged prescription drug ring.

Deputies arrested Shantae Akpaffiong, James Turner and Detrel Smith. Deputies say over the past few months Akpaffiong was illegally dispensing prescription drugs out of a pharmacy in Richmond.

The arrests were made after a four-month undercover investigation.
