A 70-year-old Palmer pharmacist has been charged with stealing prescription drugs and swapping them for sex with a woman half his age, said police.
Paul A. Lussier of East Longmeadow pleaded innocent Thursday in Palmer District Court. He is charged with six felony counts of larceny of a controlled substance, trafficking of more than 200 grams of a class A drug, and two counts of possession of a firearm.
Lussier, a married father, was allegedly trading the addictive pain killer Vicodin for favors from a local woman in her 30s, police said.
