BEAUFORT — A two-month investigation into a prescription drug fraud ring has resulted in warrants against 16 suspects.

Investigators from the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office and the State Bureau of Investigation filed the warrants, according to Capt. Jason Wank, chief detective, who issued a news release Friday. The operation was in Carteret, Craven, Onslow, New Hanover and Brunswick counties.

The investigation began after a report was received against Casey Ann Williams, 30, Witten Circle, Havelock, a radiology technician at Crystal Coast Family Practice of Morehead City who formerly lived in Wilmington.

The tipster reported Ms. Williams allegedly stole prescription pads from doctors’ offices at Port City Neurosurgery & Spine in Wilmington, Coastal Carolina Orthopedic Surgery in Jacksonville and Medac Health Services in Wilmington, offices where Ms. Williams was formerly employed.

Officials say the investigation revealed Ms. Williams and her boyfriend James Howard Maynor, 27, who resides with Ms. Williams, forged numerous prescriptions from the stolen pads and sold forged completed scripts to buyers who were willing to pay.

The couple allegedly began selling the fraudulent prescriptions to buyers in New Hanover and Brunswick counties. Ms. Williams and Mr. Maynor eventually moved to Havelock, and the pair continued to sell written prescriptions and prescription medications to buyers in Carteret County, according to officials.  

Investigators were able to backtrack the scripts that came from the stolen pads and obtain a list of buyers.

After receiving the tip in December, the couple was questioned by sheriff’s detectives and the SBI. 

Both allegedly distributed nearly 4,580 (10 mg) Percocet pills, which is a prescription pain medication. It was discovered by investigators that most were sold on the street for $10 each. Investigators then obtained warrants.

“This is a prime example of the amount of medication that can be diverted by one individual who gets access to a prescription pad,” said Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck. “It reinforces just how strict controls have to be regarding the prescribing of controlled medications and practices in our doctor’s offices. If this information had not been brought to our attention, there is no telling how long this would have continued and how many pills would have been diverted and abused.

“Our drug detectives and SBI Agent Cecil Cherry deserve a lot of credit for all the time and effort they put into this case,” said the sheriff. 

Warrants were obtained on Feb. 2 for the following.

•    Ms. Williams is charged with five counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and 14 counts of conspiring to traffic opium. Her bond was set at $250,000 secured.

•    Mr. Maynor is charged with five counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and 14 counts of conspiring to traffic opium. He bond was set at $251,900 secured.

•    Shawn Robert Langan, 27, Newport, is charged with five counts each of level three trafficking by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and two counts of conspiring to traffic in opium. His bond is set at $15,000 secured.

•    Megan Jane Patton, 27, Newport, is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium. Her bond was set at $10,000 secured.

•    Aaron Elvis Padrick, 25, Morehead City, is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium by possession. His bond was set at $7,500 secured.

•    Adam Craig Miller, 36, Newport, is charged with one count of conspiring to traffic in opium. His bond was set at $3,000 secured.

•    Kaitlyn Elizabeth Cloud, 21, Newport, is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, conspiring to traffic opium and level three trafficking opium by possession. Her bond is set at $15,000 secured.

•    Adele Loren Davis, 28, Morehead City, is charged with two counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of conspiring to traffic opium. Her bond was set at $10,000 secured.

•    William Richard McBride, 34, Leland, is charged with five counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. He was apprehended in Brunswick County. His bond is set at $100,000 unsecured.

•    Sean Michael Gaines, 40, Wilmington, is charged with one count of level three trafficking opium by possession and two counts each of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium. He was arrested in New Hanover County and his bond was set at $100,000 secured.

•    Scott Osowski, 35, Wilmington, is charged with six counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. He was arrested in New Hanover County, and his bond is set at $100,000 secured.

Warrants are on file for the following subjects but they have not been arrested.

•    Peter Joseph Minks III, 24, Newport, is charged with three counts each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium.

•    Tara Jones Minks, 24, Newport, is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium.

•    Christopher Alan Suplee, 30, Beaufort, is charged with one count of conspiring to traffic opium by possession.

•    Jeremy Lyle Lupton, 31, Newport, is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

•    Brian Andrew Lewis, 25, Newport is charged with one count each of level three trafficking opium by possession, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and conspiring to traffic opium.

    There is no money in fighting the war on those who abuse children. There is money in the "War on drugs", and also the "War on domestic Violence". Both get federal funds, and local gestapo can crow about how good they are in stopping the evil. Now, barney fife wants more authority to invade your medical history and business. And we'll all be more safe (right)..

    Im so sick and tired of this prescription "war"!! Nobody but the people that are abusing these meds are to blame not the meds not the dr.s and not the government!! Once these people leave the dr.office their own their own if a dr writes a med and says take 2 a day and someone takes 5 and overdoses it their own fault!! Not the dr he covered his self already by putting instructions on the bottle thats all they can do..it called SELF CONTROLL people! There is no way grown people can or should be babysitted with their medicines as long as a dr. is prescribing for a ligiment problem than thats his business believe it or not there are people that actually need these different medicines and DO NOT abuse them thats what they were invented for!! There called self disciplined responsibe adults! So law enforecent and the city should spend more time focusing on the ones molesting and abusing our children and locking them under the jail!!!! To never get out instead of these people! There doing it on their own free will and its nobodies fault by their own but these idiots praying on our children never even see a day behind bars!!!!!! Ridiculious!!!!!!!!

    Prison will solve nothing, it just opens up a job for selling drugs for someone else. Then, with a criminal record, one of these drug convicts will never get a decent job. What do we as a society tihink they will do then? Of course they will resort to crime, the "honest" world won't give them a chance. The injustice system is just too subverted, and money driven to be taken seriously, except from the view point of ruining peoples lives. The system is corrupt. Society is at more risk from the corruption in the judicial system than from the drug world. More money is extorted from the citizenry by the courts than damage from the drug trade. Straighten out the injustice system, then we can talk about its applications.

    To all of whom say prison isnt the answer, why not? This seems to be people trafficking drugs, that yeah they probably use but most of them sell. So its not even a case of them needing help. They need to find a better way to make money and make better decisions. This is coming from someone who has a whole lot of loved ones in the system. A whole lot of loved ones under the grip of actual drug use. And someone who is being raised in an era where the biggest topic in the lunch room is who has the best hook up. They are restricted from drugs, get punished for their actions, and shoot if not having what you need is the problem, now you got food and shelter boo. I was raised by a single mother with no high school diploma and 5 other kids. Living off of $25000 and she found away to make ends meet without breaking the law. We been dirt poor, on the street, hungry, and dirty but didnt decide to sell drugs. its all a case of choice.

    The lawyers in this county are only concerned with getting your dollar, will not represent you, will abandon you, will conspire with the opposing attorney to drag on a case to take your money, continue your case in perpetuity, and bill you for every breath they take. I was taught that the law existed to enable us to live in peace and settle our differences. When the law fails and is dishonest, even criminal, what do we do then? It would be good advice for the local lawyers to ponder that question.

    The LEOs and Asa Buck does not have my respect. Respect is earned, not given to someone just because they wear a shiny badge or hold a particular office. I have lived here over twenty years and through me being a good citizen, holding jobs that require trust from others, I earned my respect from others. But thanks to the practices of the LEO in this area, my reputation was shot. My whole life has been turned upside down. I have lost respect from my family and friends. Why??? Because 'I' THOUGHT I was doing the right thing by calling and reporting a crime that was taking place. I was told by one of the LEO (narcotics dept.) to go back to the crime scene. They put my life and my neighbors lives in jeopardy. Instead of them coming and arresting the person that was doing the crime, they waited for 2 hours after I called, and when they did get here, they not only arrested the person doing the crime but they also arrested me. I hold a NC real estate brokers license and went to school for nursing at ccc. I have cared for a lot of well known elderly people in their homes here in CC. I could go on but I am too upset right now. I will be writing a letter to the editor very soon so that all of CC can know what took place. I haven't gotten a lawyer yet, because as someone stated above, the ones with the money is the ones that get good representation. No attorneys around here will take my case because they all have ties together. I was told that I will have to get someone that is out of this county and craven county. I don't have the money to hire someone from Raleigh to come here. I am hoping that when I do send my letter to the editor that the right person will read it, and maybe know of someone out of this area that could help me. I had not as much as even had a speeding ticket before this incidence. I was locked in jail for '9' days. I was on the floor on a mat (treated worse than an animal) I had to stay on that mat 20 hours a day and allowed off of it for 4 hours a day. Laid there while other inmates walked past me kicking dirt up into my face. My picture and name was plastered all over the news and local papers. I had to read all the cruel and judgmental remarks from ignorant people that had no idea of what actually took place that night. I am a Christian and try to treat people right and not judge anyone. I get so sick and tired of people's remarks I read on threads such as these. If it had been left up to the readers of the papers that remarks were made about me, they would of liked to had put me 'under Beaufort jail.' All by what they read, not by the truth (facts). Has anyone heard that saying? I think from the move Tombstone... I'm coming and he:ll is coming with me. Well, watch out all of you that think that our local CCsherriff and 'his' leo's are so honest and here to serve and protect us. WHAT A FLIPPING JOKE!! Channel 12 news has already told me that they want to do a story. Like I said.... I'm coming.

    Someone mentioned Lush Limbaugh. Has he been in the news lately? Lush knows hipocrisy. Funny how it's treatment, not jail for the a wealthy white man who speaks out that drug users should be punished and sent up the river.Also research the bail amount for Lush, mch less than those above.Limbaugh, who has been investigated for prescription drug abuse and charged with doctor shopping, has been an outspoken critic of what he sees as leniency towards criminal drug use in America. On his television show in October 5, 1995 Limbough stated:"[T]oo many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too.[36]The drug-related criminal charges against Limbaugh were dropped by prosecutors when Limbaugh agreed to pay $30,000 to defray the cost of the investigation and complete an 18-month therapy regimen with his physician

    Anybody know if Asa Buck is related to Paul Buck? The Buck family lived on Live Oak Street in Beaufort. I remember playing pool there. A barber shop was on the other side of the street. That was many years ago.

    Pally: Where did the "erase everybodys record" statement come from?

    To pally: I would agree with you on some of your points, but cannot because of the followng reasons:1. The justice system is subverted and dishonest. 2. There is not equal representation of the accused. The system is money driven, you get as much justice as you can afford.3. Due process is a foreign concept in this county.4. Standard of proof is a foreign concept in this county.5. Beyond a reasonable doubt is a foreign concept in this county.6. Critical thinking is absent in much of the jury pool.7. Magistrates issue warrants based on no standard of proof.8. Judges make decisions based on politics not evidence.9. The state and county get money for convictions in certain cases, a conflict of interest exists.10. Certain law firms that represent the town of beaufort have dishonest relationships with judicial officials.11. Law enforcement in this county have dishonest staff.12. The constitutional rights of the accused are violated as a normal course of business.Finally, there are two categories of people, those who have been caught, and those who haven't been caught yet. To your example of a child molester. That is one of those accusations that no matter what the verdict, people wonder. Additionally, it is common in divorce gamesmanship for crooked spouses to scream domestic abuse, child abuse, etc. etc. to gain advantage in divorce. If the accused was tried by a properly seated jury, had effective honest representation, an honest judge, and a prosecutor interested in the truth, not just a conviction, I would agree with you. Unfortunately, our system has been so corrupted, and our morals so subverted, a conviction means little anymore, other than screwing up someones life. Are there child molesters in the world, sure there are, thats where parents should watch their children. As far as a thief, there is little doubt that you have taken something not yours at some point in your life.Cast your stones elsewhere.

    Where did this attitude come from, where people get satisfaction from others misfortune. What have we turned into? Lets just throw folks away in prison and forget them? Lets ruin their lives? Addiction is a disease, and until we realize that, all the prisons in the world won't solve the problem. Additionally, taking away all our freedoms will not solve the problem either, but it will feed into a socialist state, which some seem to like. I am a believer in the christian faith, and also believe in helping my fellow man, not trying to ruin his. I also believe in the constitution and rule of just laws. I do not believe in a police state, standing armies through militarization of law enforcement, and the presumption of guilt before innocence. People can change, and it could be you next victimized by the injustice machine.

    I have not a problem hiring a qualified person with a record. I don't believe in life sentences by default. With a name like pelosi, well the name speaks for itself (barf). There are two kinds of people in the world, those who have been caught, and those who haven't been caught yet. Glad you can throw stones pelosi.

    Thank you BFDR. Giving folks a criminal record does make it extremely difficult to get a job, especially in this economy. Folks are going to eat, and if they cannot earn money legally, they will do it another way. The legal system is absurd, bloated, and confiscatory. We need to take the money and power away from the crooked lawyers, talk about huge egos. I digress, prison is not the answer, treatment is the answer to the drug question.

    Reality is right, the war on drugs is the war on America. Sending people to jail over addiction just leads them furthur down the spiral. Once you have a criminal record the path to be a respected member of society and ability to get a good job becomes harder, which makes becoming a career criminal/addict easier. Look at the size of some of those bonds 250K for pills when a person brought in for violent crimes like assault or rape etc don't even get a third of those bond amounts.These people need help, not jail.

    To Steve: Yes, improving the economy would reduce crime to include theft and drug abuse. The war on drugs will never end, will eventually result in confiscation of our freedoms, and an already overbearing law enforcement crowd. It is unbelieveable some of the cases heard in district court. We need LESS government intrusion NOT more. Yes, we could greatly reduce crime, all we have to do is live in a police state. We have too many power drunk, bad attitude cops already. Treatment and reduction of demand is the real solution. A cop under our mattress will not do it.

    Everyone has problems, life isnt about the problems you face. It's the actions you do to cope with these that define the individual who you are and become.Some people turn to drugs or other substances, some turn to God, family and friends for help.In this reader's eyes, its a cultural problem. The decay of family and community. We all work against each other, not realizing that we can all help each other towards acheiving a solution to a common problem. As soon as someone in our 'community' is deemed to have a 'problem' that are almost immediately stigmatized thereby catalyzing their descent to obscurity and abuse. Again, by their own free-will BUT we dont really provide any other option when we whisper among ourselves about someones substance abuse. When I find out about such instances, I treat the individual no different as before and always offer to 'help' (not provide) them in anyway I can, work, school, personal life, etc.And please don't stereotype and say its limited to 18-30 yr olds ( A vast majority of the people I know that abuse prescription drugs are over 40, it may be that they're just wise enough not to get caught).Also, its not just prescription drugs, its definetely Alcohol too. I have lived many places but was raised in ENC and have always been perturbed by the prevalency of Alcohol in this community.LEO does deserve a tremendous amount respect and gratitude because they may have shut down one source for others to expedite their descent to darker days.

    some of these comments crack me up. NO ONE on here knows the whole entire story unless they were one of the people involved. i don't claim to have all the answers but people have problems. the sad truth is that this whole world is going to in a handbasket if things don't change. tell me which of you, if any of you would help any of the people above if they cried out to you for help. could you get past the fact that they committed a crime, that they have a problem, and love them for the person they really are??? i've loved and lost many that struggled with addiction. the solution starts with wanting to get help and wanting to change. poverty is no excuse, but truth is, problems like these do run rampant in lower income areas. did law enforcement do a good job? sure. is what these people did wrong? of course! should they have to answer for it? yes, because they broke the law. is jail/prison the answer? while it is the established punishment for those actions, they also need help and the opportunity to get clean without the public constantly persecuting them. People CAN change if they want to. I know plenty of people that have cleaned up- but a major step was getting out of carteret county or wherever it was that they were when the problem started in the first place. It's a little hard to clean up and get your life together when the very thing you're addicted to is so readily available all around you (so how bout we start with the pharmeceutical companies?). People are so quick to point the finger and say "lock them up" or "once a criminal, always one". I don't think anyone should be targeted for trying to get away from the problem source and straighten up their lives for the betterment of themselves and their family. grow up people. i highly doubt anyone was "fleeing"

    @4perfectpeople....I've seen the addiction affect a loved one and its the worst thing I have been through in my life and unfortunately we were unable to get them help in time. I'm not judging anyone I just wish there was a solution to all this. The people involved are so young and this kind of thing follows you FOREVER.

    @ whatsnew, letting the sheriff have access to perscription drug records would be a giant step towards slowing down drug abuse. As long as people are able to forge fake perscriptions and then go to multiple pharmacys, the problem will remain.I think there should be a data base by social security # that will tell every prarmacy what things you have had filled in the past and who wrote it for you.

    @Dolphilover, the article said she was a radilogic technician, not a radiologist. Techs just take x-rays, definitely not a high paying salary like a doctor, but they make a good amount. Something needs to be done about this prescription drug craze, its out of control. I often wonder what are people's mindset when they decide to something stupid like this, do they think about the consequences? How it can affect not only their lives, but their families as well? Its sad, truly sad!

    If what "Reality" said were true, treating the trait of greed and improving the economy would stop theft too. These people broke the law, plain and simple. Many lives have been lost due to drugs. Don't try to blame it on the addiction or the economy. Good job law enforcement, keep it up. Thanks,

    One way that doctors are preventing this type of drug problem from occurring is by filing prescriptions electronically with the patient's pharmacy. When the pharmacy receives a prescription electronically, they verify that the request did come from the requesting physician (also done electronically) before filling the prescription. No more prescription pads and paper prescriptions that can be easily forged and difficult to verify.

    Wow most of them are from Newport. Why would anyone risk a high paying job like a radiologist for drugs? She must have gotten mixed up with the wrong man.

    Hmmmm... I haven't read anywhere that anyone "fled" to Canada.. Even if they are in Canada they may not have went there to avoid prosecution. Also, kudos to REALITY...you are correct. there are no decent places for addicts to go and truly get the help they need. I know this first hand... You MAY get in and then what... A few meetings and then they kick you out. No real plan of recovery in our county or even our state. Until we deal with the real issues we will continue to have this effect. And, I am sorry but drug addiction is a disease and jail is not the answer!

    These people are better off being caught than continue doing what they are doing to their bodies-frying their brains or probably overdosing. It is extremely easy to overdose on pain meds. I hope that they all straighten out and live healthy lives.

    More foks whose lives will be ruined by the injustice system. The "War on Drugs" is a failure, has created a standing army aka law enforcement, something the founding fathers warned us about. To stop drug abuse you have to treat addictions and improve the economy. As long as there is demand, there will always be dealers to take the place of those incarcerated. This is a failed war. These folks now have a drug arrest history, good luck finding a decent job in this economy.

    Is it me or does everyone think it's weird to look at a mug shot of a smiling criminal?

    It would be nice if the paper would for once get the entire story, before getting part of a story and filling in the blanks with what they believe. It is amazing what they will put in print just to sell a paper. Even though some of their information seems correct some is just obvious fill in. Hope the reported didn't get paid for a full story.
