A DEA raid last week that spanned several Indiana counties leaves Dr. Larry Ley of Carmel still in jail with a $1 million bond for both Hamilton and Howard counties. His medical license is still in question after the alleged cash for pills scheme was disbanded by the DEA. In 1995, Dr. Ley had voluntarily rescinded his medical license due to alcoholism, and he was arrested for DWI in 1995 and later in 2002. He was able to reinstate his license in 2002.
A jury trial date has been set for October 31 for Dr. Luella Bangura, another doctor arrested in the drug raid. Bangura wrote more than 120 prescriptions for Suboxone daily on numerous occasions in a Kokomo, Indiana office.
Suboxone is used to treat patients with heroin addictions. Dr. Ley’s practice sold the drug without requiring patients to see a doctor, with on camera exchanges taking place in minutes. Patients were not given physicals or blood work before given the medication, they were simply given Suboxone in exchange for cash.
A 20-year survey from the Tippecanoe County coroner’s office released this month showed that prescription drugs Methadone, Suboxone and Morphine kill more people than street drugs such as heroin and cocaine. The report mentions 16 people died in Tippecanoe County from overdosing on Methadone (a drug similar to Suboxone) alone.
