Jason Caracappa of Manalapan previously pleaded guilty to distributing oxycodone, a controlled substance. He will also serve three years supervised release.

Caracappa is the last of eight people sentenced this week for their involvement in the scheme, including pharmacist Vincent Hsia. Hsia, who also owned Lincoln Pharmacy Network in Edison, was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Some of the defendants used stolen or blank prescriptions, or prescriptions made out to fictitious patients, to obtain the pills.

The investigation was carried out by the DEA, FBI and IRS along with several New Jersey police departments and the Essex County prosecutor’s and sheriff’s offices.
