A Georgia psychiatrist accused of running a pill mill that allegedly led to the deaths of 36 patients was arrested during a DEA raid, UPI reports. 

Dr. Narendra Nagareddy is accused of violating the state’s Controlled Substances Act by overprescribing potentially dangerous medications.

“He’s a psychiatrist in Jonesboro who has been overprescribing opiates and benzodiazepine and the last several years has had a multitude of overdose deaths.” Clayton County Police Chief Mike Register told WSB-TV.

His office and home were raided by local and federal authorities in Jonesboro, Ga.

“Former and current patients have admitted to obtaining controlled substance prescriptions from Dr. Nagareddy without having a legitimate medical need,” court records show.
