By Sophie Pappas
Early Friday morning, numerous search warrants were served on locations in Hamilton, Howard, Wayne and Delaware Counties.
The search warrants were served at private residences and two clinics: Drug and Opiate Recovery Network (DORN) and Living Life Clean (LLC). Additionally, numerous arrest warrants were served on doctors and employees of these clinics as a result of this long term prescription drug investigation conducted by the Hamilton County/Boone County Drug Task Force and the DEA. Below is a list of who was arrested. Attorney Andrew Dollard is a former Republican candidate for the Hamilton County Council.
Dr. Larry Ley, 68, of Noblesville
Derek Tislow, 41, of Avon
Andrew Dollard, 40, of Carmel
Cassy Linn Bratcher, 37, of Carmel
Yvonne Morgan, 61, of Eaton, OH
Jessica Callahan, 37, of Muncie
Dr. George Agapios, 47, of Fishers
Dr. Ronald Vierk, 58, of Richmond
Eric Ley, 38, of Carmel
Felicia Reid, 26, of Carmel
Dr. Luella Bangura, 52, of Lafayettel.
Sources say the nine-month-long investigation began with complaints–one of them by the relative of a deceased patient–that Ley and the three other doctors were handing out Suboxone, an alternative to heroin and methodone, to hundreds of patients.
Here’s a look at one of the charges:
