Pharmacist allegedly sold drugs from Texas home
Posted on Friday, March 22nd, 2013
Texas State Board of Pharmacy recently suspended a pharmacist’s license after she was charged with illegally selling prescription drugs from her home.
According to a report on Wednesday, March 6, Arlington resident Esther Chinedozi Amaka was charged with diverting controlled substances after her pharmacy business Express Rx closed in 2012. After Amaka’s home was raided last month by Denton police, she was booked on February 13 and was released the following day after posting a $50,000 bond. Narcotics were reportedly missing from a Denton pharmacy owned by Amaka that had previously closed. Afterwards, Amaka allegedly sold the narcotics from her home.
However, Amaka is currently denying intentional wrongdoing, according to Board Officials.
