A Woodford County drug investigation has led to the the indictment of a doctor in Florida as well as nine other people accused of being involved in a criminal syndicate.
Officials say a traffic stop in Florida cracked the investigation into Dr. Jay Paul Jacobs, II. According to court documents, Jacobs, a family physician in Palm Beach, Florida, supplied prescription pills to a lot of "patients" with no medical exam needed.
"They would meet not at his doctor's office but various locations like a Starbucks coffee shop to get prescriptions," said Versailles Police Lt. Daniel Clark.
Last march, a traffic stop in Florida revealed that a carload of Kentucky residents received oxycodone prescriptions from Dr. Jacobs. All seven "patients" had been seen by the doctor at his Wellington, Florida home.
Versailles Police say multiple doctor visits down I-75 lead to the indictments of Jacobs and nine Woodford County residents, including Amber Graham, the mother of two Woodford County children who died in a house fire back in December, and her boyfriend, Eddie Poole.
Police say the doctor's alleged "cash and carry" business was extremely profitable. "Each person who went down there (to see) the doctor was probably getting 200 to 300 dollars per prescription," said Clark.
Kentucky and Florida authorities estimate Jacobs prescribed more than 100,000 oxycodone pills to all his in and out of state patients last year.
Versailles Police hope this case puts all "dirty docs" on notice. "We're expanding reaching out to the doctors who continue to give illegal prescriptions to people," said Clark.
Jacobs voluntarily surrendered his medical license late last year. Aside from the Kentucky charges, he's facing cocaine charges in Florida.
Jacobs will be extradited to Kentucky to face charges here.
