An Anaheim man was arrested for selling prescription drugs following a three-month long investigation by Irvine police.

Detectives caught up with 37-year-old Anthony Risberg Friday after authorities witnessed an alleged drug sale. Risberg was arrested for sales and transportation of a controlled substance and a weapons violation.

During the later investigation, authorities conducted a search of the suspect's vehicle and residence and found approximately 150 Oxycodone pills, two loaded handguns, and an altered assault rifle among other weapons.

It's unclear exactly how Risberg obtained the pills he was selling for profit. But Risberg is employed in sales and has no obvious connection to the medical or pharmaceutical profession.

He is being held on $25,000 bail.
