PHARMACY SETTLEMENT
Grant County pharmacy, 4 employees pay $2M to end federal investigation

WHEELING, W.Va.


Federal prosecutors say a Grant County pharmacy and four of its employees have paid $2 million to settle allegations that they improperly filled prescriptions for narcotic painkillers.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld announced the settlement with Judy's Drug Store, Darin Judy, Emily Judy, Kimberly Arbaugh and Casey Watts on Wednesday. They were accused of filling prescriptions that were not written for legitimate medical purposes.

The investigation stemmed from the prosecution of a Hardy County physician, Rajan Masih, who pleaded guilty in 2011 to improperly distributing painkillers and was sentenced to four years in prison. Ihlenfeld said Masih wrote many of the prescriptions improperly filled by Judy's Drug Store.

Emily Judy, the store's president, declined to comment on the settlement.
