A Prescott doctor was arrested and jailed Wednesday on suspicion of prescription fraud, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said.
Dr. Randy Joe Spicer, 39, was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges of administering a narcotic drug, obtaining a narcotic drug by fraud, conspiracy to sell dangerous drugs and facilitation to sell/distribute dangerous drugs.
During the investigation conducted by the Yavapai County Prescription Drug Task Force, detectives monitored Spicer's participation in prescribing narcotic medication for non-medical related reasons to patients at his medical practice in the Clearwater Medical Center in Prescott.
Detectives said they documented several violations, including Spicer's agreement to profit from medications he knowingly prescribed for resale on the streets.
Spicer was recently arrested and booked into the YCSO detention facility by the Prescott Police Department for an unrelated criminal investigation. He had been released on bond less than one month ago.
Since his prior release from custody, Spicer has continued to use his medical profession to prescribe medication for non-medical related reasons, investigators said.
His bond for the latest charges is set at $15,000. His total bond as a result of the $50,000 bond revocation on his prior case is now $65,000, YCSO said.
