Local Veterinarian arrested by DEA
An Escambia County Veterinarian is facing charges for writing fraudulent prescriptions.
Doctor Michael Windley is a Veterinarian at the Companion Animal Clinic in Cantonment.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says Doctor Windley was fraudulently obtaining methadone by writing prescriptions in the name of his ex-wife's dog.
Investigators say he would fill the prescriptions at various pharmacies in the area and give the drugs to his former daughter-in-law.
Records show that between December 2012 and February 2014 he filled 30 prescriptions for methadone.
He is facing several charges including possession, delivery, and manufacture of a controlled substance.
