Police Raid Suspected Northlake Parkway Pill Mill
The Drug Enforcement Agency and DeKalb County police were investigating Southern Health Management on Thursday afternoon.
UPDATE: [6:28pm] Southern Health Management owner Jeffrey Gonzalez spoke to reporters outside the building as he was taken away in handcuffs, charged with criminal conspiracy, saying that his business was legitimate and that he knows President Obama, according to an evening WSB-TV news broadcast.
"I find it hard to believe that the president would come to a criminal's house. We medicate people for the right reasons, not the wrong reasons," Gonzalez said. He also said "churches run America."
WSB reported law enforcement officials found "box after box" of medications on the premises and inside vehicles in the parking lot. The station showed footage of cars, many with out-of-state tags, being towed away. During the raid, more people arrived at the clinic who were then arrested, the report said.
