A Colorado Springs anesthesiologist is facing charges after she was caught illegally filling opioid prescriptions, according to police.
Police said Dr. Agnes Flaum, 41, is accused of illegally filling opioid prescriptions through her employees and patients. After employees filled several prescriptions for her, they reported the activity to the previous owner of the practice, who then reported it to the police department and to the Colorado Medical Board, according to police. The police started their investigation in January.
An arrest warrant was issued for Flaum in mid-February, and she turned herself in a few days later. She is charged with three counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud/deceit.
Flaum’s Colorado medical license has been suspended until further notice.
