On June 12, 2019, Arizona’s Attorney General announced the indictment of Dr. Glenn Gary Robertson and Timothy Arthur Evicci by a State Grand Jury on various charges including conspiracy and fraud. The Press Release states:

Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced a State Grand Jury has indicted Dr. Glenn Gary Robertson and Timothy Arthur Evicci for Illegally Conducting an Enterprise, Conspiracy, Fraud, Transporting a Narcotic Drug for Sale, and Illegally Administering a Narcotic Drug.

Robertson was an internal medicine doctor practicing medicine in Benson, Arizona. A joint investigation conducted by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Arizona Attorney General’s Office alleges that between January 2, 2017, and June 6, 2018, Robertson wrote 3,516 prescriptions for opioids, totaling 415,665 pills. The indictment alleges that Robertson was administering significant amounts of Oxycodone to Evicci and another co-conspirator. Purportedly, Evicci and the co-conspirator drove from Tucson to Robertson’s office in Benson to receive their prescriptions, and would then travel back to Tucson where they would fill the prescriptions, and then sell the pills in Tucson.

Robertson’s license to practice medicine was summarily suspended by the Arizona Medical Board effective June 25, 2018.  Robertson’s license to practice medicine was revoked effective December 14, 2018.
