Pharmacist charged with delivery of a controlled substance

Posted on April 27th, 2011 No Comments

Last week, a Houston pharmacist was arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance.  The pharmacist was employed at the Richmond Professional Pharmacy on the 1600 block of Main Street.

An undercover police officer made the discovery that the licensed and registered pharmacist was illegally distributing drugs.  The officer claims to have been able to get several Xanax and LorTab pills from the pharmacist in unmarked bottles delivered in a cardboard box.

Since his arrest, the pharmacist surrendered DEA and DPS controlled substance registration numbers used at the pharmacy and another pharmacy he owns in Rosenberg.  In addition, he has surrendered his personal Texas State Board of Pharmacy license number.  He was released from holding on a $20,000 bond.
