An 81-year-old pharmacist in Pennsylvania has been arrested and charged with trading pain medication for sexual favors from customers.

The Delaware County District Attorney’s Office wrote in a Nov. 1 statement that Martin Brian was arrested and charged with distributing drugs from his pharmacy in Media, Penn., in return for sex from addicted customers who had no prescriptions.

Brian was charged with “multiple counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, distribution of a controlled substance to a drug-dependent person, the dispensing of a controlled substance in a manner inconsistent with the rules of the medical profession, the criminal use of a communication facility, and sexual extortion,” according to the District Attorney’s office.

Jack Stollsteimer, Delaware County District Attorney, said:

He was giving out those drugs to people who did not need them, people who were addicted to them, just so he could get what he wanted from them, which was sexual gratification.

The investigation was launched in April when police were notified about two people who were passed out inside a car parked behind the Murray-Overhill Pharmacy on State Street.

As the cops identified the occupants, a woman came out of the back of the pharmacy. Seeing the officers, she went back inside. Brian then came out of the store.

The cops questioned the two and became suspicious when their statements contradicted each other.

They then seized the woman’s mobile phone, where they found messages sent by the pharmacist instructing her on how to reply to police questions.

An investigation into the pharmacy was opened. An audit of its records determined there were large amounts of missing medications that had not been properly accounted for.

The analysis found the pharmacy run by Brian was the biggest purchaser in the local ZIP code of highly addictive drugs, such as oxycodone, Xanax and the deadly substance fentanyl between 2016 and 2021.

Investigators also found around $50,000 in cash in a drawer inside the store.

The woman previously questioned later confessed to police she had been exchanging sexual favors in return for drugs from Brian on a weekly basis.

Police were then able to identify a second woman, who told the officers the same story.

The second woman told authorities she received oxycodone from the pharmacist in exchange for sex. She then resold it to buy heroin.

Stollsteimer said: “What’s going on with fentanyl is destroying families all across Delaware County as we speak.”

Brian was not in custody during the investigation but handed himself in to authorities on Nov. 1. His bail bond was set at $250,000.

Thomas Hodnett, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Philadelphia Field Division, called the allegations against Brian “repulsive.” He said they “demonstrate Brian’s total disregard for his legal and ethical responsibilities as a pharmacist.”

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 17 before Magisterial District Judge Walter A. Strohl.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Henry McMaster today signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency and activating the state’s emergency operations plan, which enables state agencies to prepare for Hurricane Ian’s potential impact to the state. The governor’s order directs the South Carolina Emergency Management Division to coordinate with all relevant state agencies and to be prepared to respond to any requests for state assistance from county emergency managers.

“It’s still too early to know exactly how Hurricane Ian will affect South Carolina, but preparations at the state level are well underway, and this declaration of emergency is another step in that process,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “We do know we’ll see a lot of rain and significant storm surge on our coastline over the coming days – now is the time for each South Carolina to make plans for every contingency and be prepared.”

CHARLOTEE, NC (Scroll down for video) – ​On Monday, December 27, 2021, officers were dispatched to a Larceny from Vehicle in progress call for service in the 6100 block of Winged Elm Court. The caller also advised that the suspect had pointed a firearm at a nearby citizen. Responding officers made contact with the suspect, who fled on foot. At the time, it was not known that the suspect was a juvenile. During a brief foot chase, the armed suspect fired at the pursuing officer, Elliott Whitley, striking Whitley in the shoulder. Officer Whitley returned fire and the suspect was not struck.

The suspect continued to run with the weapon towards a heavily populated apartment complex as well as in the direction of other responding officers who were able to take the suspect into custody.

Officer Whitley was transported to an area hospital and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect was later identified as a 14-year-old who had an extensive felony history including charges in 46 criminal cases dating back as far as 2014.

The CMPD Homicide Unit responded to the scene to lead the investigation, and Crime Scene Investigation responded to collect physical evidence. Representatives of the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Homicide Prosecution Team also responded to assist.

As is standard procedure with any officer-involved shooting, the Internal Affairs Bureau conducted a separate but parallel investigation to determine whether CMPD policies and procedures were adhered to during the incident.

The investigation determined that Officer Whitley was justified in his actions, including returning fire, due to the deadly threat posed by the suspect.

Officer Whitley was placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard policy whenever an officer discharges a service weapon. For additional information about this case, please refer to the report: 20211227-0720-01.
