Wyoming pharmacy agrees $1M settlement in federal drug case

CASPER, Wyo. (AP)   –  A Wyoming pharmacy is expected to pay $1 million to settle allegations of federal drug law violations.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Osco Pharmacy in Casper was investigated in connection with a case against a doctor convicted of illegally distributing prescription medication.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Wyoming says the pharmacy and its employees were not named as part of the criminal prosecution of Shakeel Kahn.

Authorities say an audit of the pharmacy found 128 instances of patients filling prescriptions for unusually large amounts of narcotic drugs, using multiple pharmacies to fill prescriptions and third parties filling prescriptions for out-of-state patients.
