Georgia and Federal Agents Raid Doctor’s Office in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia

On Wednesday of this week, Georgia and federal law enforcement officials searched the offices of Dr. William Nelson pursuant to a joint investigation involving Drug Enforcement Agency agents and Glynn County and City of Brunswick, Georgia local police (St. Simon’s Island, Georgia is just over an hour north of Jacksonville, Florida). The law enforcement officers were executing a federal search warrant and seized boxes of documents from Dr. William Nelson’s family and emergency medical practice.

According to the article on Jacksonville.com, Dr. Nelson is a board certified doctor in emergency medicine, but his medical license had been suspended due to alleged issues with his child support obligations. It is unclear at this time what evidence the law enforcement officials were looking for, however the article does make reference to prescriptions for patients for drugs such as Oxycontin, Xanax, Percocet, Valium, Methadone and Hydrocodone.
