Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo, Gloucester Township Police Chief Harry Earle and Voorhees Police Chief Louis Bordi announced that Dr. William R. Wolfe, M.D., who operated a neurological practice located in Voorhees Township, was arrested in connection with an investigation into the overprescribing of the addictive pain killer Oxycodone and other controlled dangerous substances. Dr. Wolfe’s receptionist, Lisa McIlhenny, was also arrested in connection with unlawfully writing prescriptions for Oxycodone.
Dr. Wolfe, 52, of Marlton, was charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and was released on his own recognizance. Dr. Wolfe surrendered his medical license. He also surrendered his Controlled Dangerous Substance and Drug Enforcement Administration registrations.
McIlhenny, 47, of Clifton Heights, Pa., was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, theft of prescription documents, and practicing medicine without a medical license. She was released on her own recognizance.
The investigation, which began with charges in a Gloucester County drug-induced death, culminated on Tuesday (6/14/16) with the execution of a search warrant upon Dr. Wolfe’s offices located at 93 Cooper Road, Suite 300 in Voorhees. The search resulted in the seizure of documents relating to the illegal distribution of the opiates.
The year-long investigation was a cooperative effort between the Drug Enforcement Administration-Diversion Unit, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Unit, the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs-Enforcement Bureau, Gloucester Township Police Department and the Voorhees Township Police Department.
