Feds suspend pharmacy over missing pain pills

Posted: Updated:

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Federal agents have served a suspension order on a western Kentucky pharmacy after an audit could not account for 130,000 pain pills over a 2-year period.

The Drug Enforcement Administration served the order Tuesday morning at Mayfair Pharmacy in Owensboro and seized all controlled substances, according to the Messenger-Inquirer.

DEA Agent Rich Isaacson said the order takes away a pharmacy's ability to handle controlled substances.

The audit of the pharmacy was a result of a joint investigation between the DEA and Owensboro police. The newspaper reported the investigation stemmed from the arrest of a pharmacy employee and anonymous calls to a Crime Stoppers tip line.
