Report: Feds raid pain clinic, pharmacy linked to suspected 'pill mills'

Federal agents raided several metro Atlanta locations Wednesday night that are linked to suspected "pill mills," Channel 2 Action News reported.

The agents raided clinics in southeast Atlanta and in Tyrone, along with a pharmacy and two homes, according to Channel 2.

Dr. William Richardson, who was working at the Amarc Medical Clinic when agents came in, told the station, "my part here was purely treating the pain."

The clinic on Lakewood Avenue and a pharmacy a block away on Jonesboro Road were among the locations raided, Channel 2 reported.

Agents loaded up boxes of files and other evidence, but officials with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration have not yet commented on the raids.
