GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A Murrells Inlet dentist was arrested by the Department of Health for illegally distributing oxycodone to a family member and significant other, and a Pawleys Island pharmacy technician was arrested for unlawfully obtaining hydrocodone, according to arrest warrants.

Dr. Barbara Ann Todd, a registered dentist with a practice on U.S. Highway 17 Bypass South in Murrells Inlet, unlawfully distributed a quantity of oxycodone, a schedule II narcotic, to a family member and significant other without legitimate medical purpose, according to a DHEC arrest warrant. The warrant states that Todd admitted to dispensing the drugs, but failed to produce records indicating legitimate medical need.

The warrants also state that Dr. Todd furnished false or fraudulent information or omitted information in records that were required to be kept for controlled substances.

Dr. Todd was arrested on December 30 and charged with manufacture, possession of other substances in schedule I, II, or III with intent to distribute, and violation of the drug distribution law, according to jail records. She was released later in the day on a $10,000 bond.

Ra-Aisha Marie Richardson is accused of unlawfully obtaining quantities of hydrocodone, a schedule II substance, from the Walgreen’s pharmacy on North Causeway Road in Pawleys Island, while performing her duties as a pharmacy technician, according to the DHEC warrant.

On December 30, she was charged with theft of controlled substances, and released later in the day on a $5,000 bond.
