NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — An inmate in New York is accused of hiding oxycodone pills in his rectum and selling them to other inmates at his jail.

Authorities say correction officers at the Rockland County jail found about 50 pills Monday after searching Bryan Lora and his cell.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1My5j0S ) says Lora has been charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and two misdemeanors.

Authorities say Lora was jailed last month after being one of 22 people arrested on drug charges during an undercover operation in Rockland.

Lora has been arraigned and sent back to jail. He's due back in court Friday.

It isn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
