Officials would not release any details regarding the busts, except that they dealt with prescription pills.

The busts were related to the suspension of Cardinal Health's controlled substances license at its Lakeland facility on Friday. The facility is a distribution center that services hundreds of pharmacies in Florida.

A CVS spokesman told Eyewitness News the DEA has suspended the two locations from dispensing controlled substances.

No one was arrested in either of the CVS raids on Saturday.

DEA officials say more detailed information will be released on Monday.
