Ex-pharmacists plead to opioid distribution, fraud

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two former Albion pharmacists are pleading guilty to federal charges for filling bad opioid prescriptions and ripping off insurance agencies.

According to documents filed in federal court Friday, John Shedd and Terry Tooley agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to unlawfully dispense controlled substances and commit health care fraud.

Shedd and Tooley used to run Parks Drug Store on Superior Street in Albion. As far back as 2016, they filled methadone prescriptions that they knew were written "without a legitimate medical purpose" by Dr. Horace Davis, federal authorities say.
