CARMEL, Ind. (March 31, 2016) – Federal agents carried out simultaneous raids at the home and office of a Carmel mail order pharmacist.

Agents for the United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General carried boxes of evidence out of the West Clay home of Dr. Ziad Khader and the offices of ProScript in the Fairbanks Building at 9292 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis.

A witness told FOX59 that agents climbed through ceiling tiles to access the office before business hours and that Dr. Khader was turned away by investigators when he arrived.

Previous to incorporating ProScript in 2013, Khader owned another mail order pharmacy which was sued for allegedly stealing the patient lists and patients of another pharmacy in Illinois.

The dozen or so boxes containing carted away from the business and home on Buckland Street appeared to contain files, according to witnesses.

One man familiar with ProScript’s operation said activity had recently dropped off to just a few hours a day at the northside location.

Khader was licensed in 2002 as a pharmacist in Indiana.

He recently filed for divorce from his wife who maintains a dental practice on Indianapolis’ southside.

FBI refused comment on the investigation.
