The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Registrant’s DEA Certificate of Registration and the denial of any pending application to renew or modify its registration, on the ground that its ‘‘continued registration is inconsistent with the public interest.’’ Show Cause Order, at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(4) and 823(f)). As to the Agency’s jurisdiction, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant is registered as a pharmacy with authority to dispense schedule II– V controlled substances under PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51433 Registration No. FC3015915, at the registered address of 8119 Court Avenue, Hamlin, West Virginia. Id. at 1. The Order alleged that this registration was due to expire on August 31, 2017. Id. As to the substantive grounds for the proceeding, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant is owned by George ‘‘Chip’’ Chapman and Summer Chapman, and that George Chapman is Registrant’s Pharmacist-in-Charge (PIC). Id. The Show Cause Order alleged that on June 30, 2016, DEA executed an Administrative Inspection Warrant (AIW) at Registrant based on ‘‘tips that PIC Chapman was frequently impaired and was unlawfully removing controlled substances from the pharmacy.’’ Id. at 2. The Order then alleged that during the inspection, DEA personnel interviewed PIC Chapman and other pharmacy employees. Id. With respect to the interview of PIC Chapman, the Show Cause Order alleged that he made various material false statements to the Investigators. Id. These included minimizing the quantity of oxycodone and hydrocodone that had been lost ‘‘in the last year,’’ stating that he had failed to reported all but one of the instances in which these drugs were ‘‘lost’’ because they were ‘‘‘not significant’ losses,’’ by denying that he knew ‘‘anything further about the nature of the pharmacy’s losses’’ while ‘‘claim[ing] that he was not abusing prescriptions drugs,’’ and stating ‘‘that many of his per diem or fill-in pharmacists were previous drug abusers.’’ Id. The Show Cause Order then alleged that in a subsequent interview conducted on July 22, 2016, Chapman ‘‘admitted that during the past year, he diverted oxycodone or hydrocodone pills equivalent to ‘200–300 mg every day,’ a total of approximately 25,000 pills.’’ Id. at 3. The Order also alleged that ‘‘Chapman admitted that he routinely falsified inventory records’’ and that he ‘‘shredded invoice and supplier records, including DEA 222 forms and electronic Controlled Substances Ordering System (‘CSOS’) records.’’ Id. The Order further alleged that ‘‘Chapman admitted that he had relapsed,’’ and told ‘‘DEA [I]nvestigators that he ‘couldn’t wait’ for’’ the expiration of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) which he had previously entered into with the Agency ‘‘so he could begin diverting . . . drugs to feed his addiction.’’ Id. The Order then alleged that Chapman admitted to E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
