Daniel Alvino Vasquez, 60, of Waterford, is charged with five counts of possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and one count of unlawfully distributing controlled substances.

According to the United States Attorney’s Office, Vasquez filled prescriptions for oxycodone and illegally sold them for profit between November 2014 and November 2017. Vasquez was an Oakland County Sheriff’s Reserve deputy at the time, but no longer holds the position.
