INTERNATIONAL: Georgia doctor arrested after 36 patients die, at least 12 from overdose on prescribed meds

article-pills-1-0115NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A Georgia doctor has been arrested after 36 of his patients died, with at least 12 killed by overdose on prescription medication.

Psychiatrist Narendra Nagareddy was held at his office Thursday following a raid by DEA agents.

Nearly 40 federal and local agents raided the offices in Jonesboro, before they seized more assets at Nagareddy’s house.

“He’s a psychiatrist in Jonesboro who has been overprescribing opiates and benzodiazepine and the last several years has had a multitude of overdoses and overdose deaths,” Clayton County Police Chief Mike Register told WSB-TV Channel 2 News.

“People come to this person for help, and instead of getting help, they’re met with deadly consequences,” Register added.
