LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two brothers have been convicted of using their Los Angeles pharmacy as a front to illegally sell prescription drugs to black market customers across the country.

The United States Attorney’s Office says a federal jury on Monday returned guilty pleas against Berry and Dalibor Kabov on counts including conspiracy to distribute narcotics, money laundering and filing false tax returns.

Officials said the brothers used their business, Global Compounding Pharmacy, to illegally obtain and distribute opioids, anabolic steroids and other drugs.

Prosecutors said from 2012 through 2014, the pharmacy ordered nearly 100,000 oxycodone pills, yet it reported only half of those pills to state authorities who track prescription drug sales.

The Kabovs are scheduled to be sentenced March 29.
