GRAYSON, Ky. (AP) – Authorities say a pharmacy manager at a Grayson, Kentucky Rite Aid has been indicted on charges including dispensing a controlled substance without a proper doctor’s prescription and criminal falsification of medical records.

30-year-old Tommy Dearfield Jr. was indicted by a Carter County grand jury this month on 37 counts. The illegal conduct is alleged to have occurred last year while Dearfield was a pharmacy manager at the drugstore.

Beshear’s detectives and Grayson police arrested Dearfield on Friday. The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy and Rite Aid Loss Prevention helped Beshear’s office investigate.

Beshear says Dearfield voluntarily surrendered his pharmacy license.

Dearfield has a Nov. 5 court appearance scheduled.
