PARKERBURG, W.Va. — A Parkersburg emergency room doctor allegedly wrote illegal prescriptions for pills according to police.
Dr. Robert Hogan II, 32, of Coolville, Ohio, was arrested by State Police Friday on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance. Troopers said Hogan’s arrest was part of a doctor prescription pill investigation that’s been taking place for several months.
Hogan, who is employed at Camden Clark Medical Center, allegedly wrote multiple prescriptions for oxycodone to people without a medical examination. In exchange, they were required to give Hogan half of the pills.
Hogan is housed in the North Central Regional Jail on $250,000 bail.
State Police said the investigation would continue.
