PAW PAW, Mich (February 14, 2014) – Kyle Hughes, a former employee, was involved in a reported break-in at a dental office in Antwerp Township that has led to an investigation involving drug fraud and stolen medication.
The investigation started on Tuesday, after deputies were alerted to a reported break-in at a dental office in Paw Paw. Detectives discovered an employee at the office had stayed after work and had invited friends into the office. While the group was there, several items were stolen, including credit cards, blank checks, shoes, a prescription pad and a doctor’s signature stamp.
Deputies believe the suspects involved may have called in prescriptions to several Kalamazoo area pharmacies using the doctor’s identification numbers for the prescriptions. After they were called in, deputies say it appears friends went to the pharmacies to get those prescriptions filled.
On Thursday, two suspects were charged in connection with the investigation.
