Feds raid doctor's office

A doctor's office robbed last week was raided by the feds on Tuesday night.

The sign outside Dr. Lawrence McKinney's office says physical therapy in big letters, but sources say there was little if any physical therapy going on. Sources allege the doctor was running a "script farm," selling prescriptions for cash.

McKinney had nothing to say to reporters about the joint investigation of his office by police narcotics and the Drug Enforcement Agency, but around the neighborhood people said some knew him as Dr. Script.

Sources say an on-going investigation reveals the doctor was running a huge prescriptions for cash operation, doling out prescriptions for Percocet and Xanax.

His customers were allegedly coming from across the tri-state area. Authorities carted out box after box of potential evidence during Tuesday night's raid.

The raid came a week after two gunmen robbed the doctor's office as he was seeing patients. They made off with five thousand dollars in cash.

The doctor has not been arrested pending the outcome of the investigation. His office has been shut down by Licenses and Inspections as a nuisance.

If convicted, he could lose his medical license and face some serious time in prison.
