(AP) – Prosecutors are accusing a doctor and nurse in Eastman of running an illegal pill mill.

A news release from District Attorney Tim Vaughn says 54-year-old Dr. George Mack Bird and 34-year-old nurse Jennifer Douglas were arrested Thursday after a raid at a women’s health clinic, a weight loss clinic and other locations.

Dr. Bird is charged with illegally possessing prescription drugs and illegally writing prescriptions, including Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and Xanax. Douglas is charged with two counts of selling a controlled substance.

Authorities say they seized nearly $1 million in cash, two office buildings, a home, four vehicles and roughly $3 million in other assets.

Dr. Bird and Douglas are being held without bond Monday in the Dodge County jail.

It is not immediately clear if they have lawyers.
