Grayson Ride Aid Pharmacy Manager Indicted For Illegally Dispensing Controlled Substance

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced that a Grayson Rite Aid Pharmacy manager has been indicted for allegedly dispensing a controlled substance without a proper doctor’s prescription and for falsifying pharmacy medical records.

Tommy Dearfield Jr., 30, of Ashland, received a 37-count indictment by a Carter County grand jury Oct. 5 for alleged illegal conduct in 2017 as pharmacy manager.

Beshear’s detectives and members of the Grayson Police Department arrested Dearfield Oct. 12. He was lodged in the Carter County Detention Center.

The investigation was conducted by Beshear’s Department of Criminal Investigations with assistance by the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy and Rite Aid Loss Prevention.

Beshear said Dearfield voluntarily surrendered his pharmacy license during the course of the investigation.

Dearfield is scheduled to appear in Carter Circuit Court at 9 a.m. on Nov. 5.
