— The former owner of a Littleton pharmacy has been indicted on federal drug trafficking charges, authorities said.

A federal grand jury indicted James Arnold King, 68, last week on 40 counts of dispensing drugs unlawfully and one count of conspiring to defraud the Veterans Administration health care system. The alleged offenses occurred between February 2006 and September 2008.

King faces a maximum penalty of 204 years in federal prison if convicted on all counts.
