ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) -- Three eastern Kentucky men have pleaded not guilty to trafficking in prescription pills.

Scott Gilliam, Brandon Logan and Michael Scott Logan entered the not guilty pleas Monday in federal court in Ashland. The Olive Hill men are charged with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and possession of oxycodone with intent to distribute.

Federal authorities say the charges resulted from an undercover investigation involving the Drug Enforcement Administration and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Officials said they seized more than $1 million in cash and assets and found a large amount of pills at Perry's Branch Holiness Tabernacle, where Gilliam was pastor until it closed about a year ago.
Authorities told the newspaper the case is believed to be among the largest pill-trafficking operations in the state.
