Philly Indian Pharmacy Employee Anmol Singh Convicted in Illegal Oxycodone Pill Mill Scheme
November 27, 2019 - Philly Indian Anmol Singh Kamra (27) was convicted today at a trial with conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone outside the usual course of professional practice and with no legitimate medical purpose.
A resident of of Upper Darby, PA, Anmol Singh Kamra was a pharmacy technician at Campus Pharmacy in West Philadelphia.
According to the case documents:
Kamra, a pharmacy technician at Campus Pharmacy in West Philadelphia, conspired with George Fisher, a physician, and Frank Brown, both charged separately, to illegally distribute thousands of oxycodone pills to people suffering from addiction. From about December 2012 through about March 2016, Kamra, Fisher, and Brown orchestrated and executed a scheme to turn the pharmacy into a “pill mill” in which Kamra knowingly filled fake oxycodone prescriptions written by Fisher in sham “patient” names, and gave the oxycodone pills to Brown to sell in street level drug deals.The illegal Oxycodone Pill Mill case against Anmol Singh Kamra was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
At times, Kamra would sell drugs without a prescription and then request that Fisher backdate a fake prescription in an attempt to cover the tracks. At trial, Kamra testified that this backdating of prescriptions was a mere “courtesy” on behalf of the doctor so patients could receive their prescriptions in a timely manner, but undercover video evidence showed otherwise. This small pharmacy in West Philadelphia sold so many opioids that some were hidden some under the sink for fear that their distributor would notice the over-abundance and cut them off for exceeding the allowable limit.
