A Manhattan doctor (whose Tortola parentage has been confirmed by BVI News) was arrested for illegally selling prescriptions for millions of dollars worth of painkillers, authorities announced on Thursday.

An 18-month-long investigation resulted in the indictment of Dr. Robert Gibbs, a licensed internal medicine physician in Harlem.

Gibbs, 75, was arraigned on charges that he supplied the head of a narcotics trafficking ring, Ronald Vaughan, with 700 prescriptions for oxycodone, amounting to 130,000 pills, according to prosecutors.

In exchange for the bogus prescriptions, Vaughan paid Gibbs in cash, according to authorities.
