Alaska nurse practitioner, doctor charged in opioid distribution scheme

An Alaska nurse practitioner and a doctor dubbed “the Candy Man” were charged Wednesday with providing millions of opioid doses to patients who did not medically require the drugs, which in turn fueled addiction and caused overdoses and deaths, officials said.

The Alaska U.S. attorney said 48-year-old Jessica Joyce Spayd and 74-year-old Lavern Davidhizar were arrested and charged separately for distributing the prescription painkillers. Federal prosecutors said the two medical professionals help fuel the state’s opioid epidemic.

OPIOID DOCTOR’S 40-YEAR SENTENCE IS STARK REMINDER OF WIDESPREAD OVERDOSE EPIDEMIC

Spayd, an advanced nurse practitioner and owner of Eagle River Wellness in Eagle River, was charged with distribution of narcotic substances resulting in death. Davidhizar, a physician at Family Medical Clinic in Soldotna, was charged with distribution of a scheduled controlled substance.

Spayd allegedly distributed more than 4 million doses of opioid narcotics, including oxycodone, methadone, and hydromorphone, to 450 patients between 2014 and 2019. At least 19 of her patients “died within one month of filling an opioid prescription” she issued, according to court documents. Twelve died within two weeks and five died the same day or the next day.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) spotted signals — including patients traveling long distances, prescriptions written before previous prescriptions expired, and patients using multiple names and pharmacies — that led them to Spayd, according to court documents. Some pharmacies in Anchorage stopped filling prescriptions written by Spayd, Anchorage’s KTUU-TV of Anchorage reported.

Davidhizar prescribed so many narcotic pills he became known by drug users as “the Candy Man,” authorities said. Court documents stated he prescribed more than 700,000 narcotic pills between 2017 and 2019, and “it was common knowledge that people could obtain pain medication prescriptions from him even though they did not have a legitimate medical need.”

Undercover FBI agents posed as patients with signs of opioid addiction but “little pain justifying the opioids they sought,” court documents stated. Davidhizar still prescribed them the drugs.

Davidhizar was put on probation in 1999 for a two-year period and fined $5,000 for failing to keep medical records for prescriptions, KTUU reported. He was placed on probation again in 2009 for five years and fined $35,000 for overprescribing drugs and failing to show concern for patients’ wellbeing.

Spayd faces a minimum of 20 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charges, while Davidhizar faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.

10 Americans were in German synagogue as gunman tried to get in: ambassador

There were 10 Americans inside a synagogue in Germany when a gunman unsuccessfully tried to enter before killing two people outside on Wednesday, the U.S. ambassador to Germany said.

The Americans are “safe and unharmed,” Ambassador Richard Grenell tweeted.

A heavily armed assailant shot at the synagogue, which was packed with 70 to 80 people observing Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement.

The gunman then killed two people while outside the building and going into a nearby kebab shop, according to German authorities and witnesses.

The attack took place in the eastern city of Halle and is being regarded as a hate crime, according to a top German security official.

UN RELEASES FIRST-EVER REPORT ON ANTI-SEMITISM HIGHLIGHTING UPTICK

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the attack might have been driven by anti-Semitism and far-right motives, according to prosecutors.

The German news magazine Der Spiegel said a 27-year-old suspect from the state of Saxony-Anhalt, where Halle is located, was arrested.

The suspected shooter streamed 35 minutes of the episode on Amazon-owned Twitch, which confirmed the live broadcast in a series of tweets on Wednesday.

The account used was created about two months ago and the user had only attempted to stream once before, the company said.

“A recording of the stream, which was automatically generated based on the account’s settings, was viewed by approximately 2200 people in the 30 minutes before the video was flagged and removed from Twitch,” it said.

“Once the video was removed, we shared the hash with an industry consortium to help prevent the proliferation of this content,” Twitch said. “We take this extremely seriously and are committed to working with industry peers, law enforcement, and any relevant parties to protect our community.”

A spokesperson for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the shooting was “terrible news from Halle,” and that government officials had no further information on the attack.

California man kidnapped girl, 17, who worked with pals to nab him in their own unofficial operation: cops

A California man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping a girl who, with the help other female teens, lured the man — in an unofficial “sting operation” — to help expose him as an older man looking to sleep with underage girls.

Richard Dreyfus, 32, was contacted by a group of girls on social media and planned to meet up at a location in Vista. When at the spot on Sunday, Dreyfus convinced the 17-year-old girl, whom he allegedly kidnapped, to get into his vehicle to talk. Then he immediately drove away, officials said.

CALIFORNIA MAN SENTENCED AFTER FORMER ROOMMATE FOUND DEAD, BLUDGEONED INSIDE WALL

Dreyfus drove the girl several miles, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. During that time, the teen “was able to send a message for help to the group, who called law enforcement.”

Deputies were able to call Dreyfus’s cell phone and he pulled over. The teen quickly fled from his vehicle, investigators said, adding she was rescued “unharmed.”

Dreyfus was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sending harmful matter to a minor and communication with a minor for specific offenses.

“There does not appear to be any relationship between the suspect and victim outside of their communication through social media,” the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators said they “strongly” discourage members of the public to try to catch criminals.

“These types of situations can be extremely dangerous and should be handled by your local law enforcement agency,” officials said.

“The Sheriff’s Department takes all crimes against our children extremely serious and is committed to keeping our children and communities safe. If you have information involving a crime, please report it to your local law enforcement agency.”

Security officer shoots, kills suspected burglar at Dallas Apple store, police say

A security guard fatally shot an armed burglar inside a Dallas Apple store Tuesday morning, according to police.

The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m., police said in a press release. At that time, the store was open because of overnight construction, Fox 4 reported.

A police spokesman said the store’s back door was open so construction workers could go in and out. The suspect, clad in body armor and armed with an assault rifle, entered the rear of the building “in an attempt to commit a robbery,” Sgt. Warren Mitchell said.

The burglar then allegedly tried to disarm a security guard who was sitting by the door. The security guard pulled out his weapon and fired “multiple shots at the suspect,” Mitchell said.

The burglar fled the store but collapsed in an alley. He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Disabled Florida dog stolen in car found: ‘Zorra is gone, she is dead’

A disabled dog resting inside a car that was stolen in Florida last week — prompting the dog’s desperate owner to plead for her return — has been found dead, a rescue group said.

Zorra, a 13-year-old Husky-Shepherd mix with paralyzed back legs, was found dead Monday, 100+ Abandoned Dogs of Everglades Florida posted online. The car the dog was stolen in reportedly was found Monday in a pond in Lauderdale Lakes.

“Zorra is gone, she is dead,” Amy Roman, the founder of the group, said in a Facebook video. “I hope that they find this piece of s— and he pays for what he did.”

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that “the investigation into the auto theft and death of the canine continues.”

“Monday night, BSO Regional Communications received a call from a towing company regarding a blue 2005 Volvo that had previously been reported stolen,” the statement said. “BSO deputies responded to the towing company and confirmed the car was stolen and confirmed a canine was found deceased in the car. Investigators are awaiting the results of a necropsy. No arrests have been made at this time.”

The dog’s owner, Wanda Ferrari, had left Zorra in an air-conditioned 2005 blue Volvo station wagon on Thursday while she ran into a Dollar Tree in Oakland Park. The dog, who typically used a pink wheelchair to get around, was lying on a pillow in the backseat, not in her wheelchair.

When Ferrari returned to her car, it was gone — and so was Zorra.

“I was in shock. And you know, the shock wore off,” Ferrari told WFMY-TV. “And then, I was traumatized, and in tears, because my girl was in the back, you know. I’m like, ‘Who would do that? Who would take a car with a dog?’ They probably didn’t know.”

Rescue groups immediately pleaded for the dog’s return. A pet detective was hired, and a $3,000 reward offered.

“All we care about is that somebody — anybody with compassion, that has children, that has a family, even the person that took the car — tell us, give us anything,” Ferrari said to WTVJ on Monday, before Zorra’s remains were found. “I don’t care how you give us a clue; I don’t care. Tell us where to find that dog.”

New Jersey man allegedly beaten over MAGA hat claims NYC art pop-up got his attackers drunk

A New Jersey man sued an art pop-up event organizer, the gallery and the building owner Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court, alleging they’re responsible for getting his attackers drunk — even though he said one was underage — before they brutally injured him in July for wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a report.

Jahangir Turan, 42, of Hoboken, said the “dangerous, unruly and belligerent group” got drunk at an “ABC Angels Club pop-up” event on Canal Street in downtown New York City before later attacking him, the New York Post reported Sunday.

The gallery, Wallplay, building owners United American Land and one of the event organizers, photographer Anna Bloda, were named in the lawsuit. The attackers have not been identified.

MAN IN ‘MAGA’ HAT ASSAULTED IN CALIFORNIA RESTAURANT BATHROOM; SUSPECT ARRESTED, POLICE SAY

Turan said in the lawsuit the three parties were “directly responsible” for “gross negligence” because alcohol was served at the event “without an appropriate license.” At least one of his attackers was under 21, Turan alleged.

One attacker knocked Turan’s MAGA hat off his head before two other people smashed his “head and face into the metal scaffolding,” the lawsuit claimed.

Turan suffered a fractured eye socket and sought damages for “substantial injuries, pain, suffering and emotional distress.”

Bloda told the Post she felt badly, “but it’s nothing to do with me.”

“I’m broke. I’m an artist hardly surviving in New York,” she told the newspaper. “I don’t know what happened — I don’t know these people. They were a bunch of skater kids who had nothing to do with me, and they all refused to say who was responsible because they were loyal to each other.”

She also said everybody who attended the event was at least 21.

“I respect everybody’s political opinions and rights to believe what they want. It’s a very bad thing that happened but it’s got nothing to do with me,” she added.

None of the parties being sued returned Fox News’ requests for comment. An email to United American Land was returned as undeliverable.

Homeless man confessed to deadly attacks in New York City, prosecutor says

A homeless man confessed to fatally bludgeoning four sleeping vagrants and critically injuring a fifth during a bloody rampage through Chinatown, a prosecutor said in court on Sunday.

Randy Santos, 24, came clean when cops confronted him with evidence of the grisly attacks, Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Alfred Peterson said.

“While he was in the 5th Precinct, he was shown video of the attacks and he admitted that he was the person in the video,” Peterson said.

Peterson also revealed that the weapon Santos allegedly used – described by law enforcement sources as a 3-foot, 15-pound piece of construction metal – was “covered in blood and hair” when cops caught him carrying it over his shoulder.

Nabbing Santos likely prevented further carnage, because “the way he was walking, it looked like he was looking for more victims,” a source has said.

Oregon Taco Bell customer who slashed man’s throat sentenced to 7 years in prison, report says

A knife-wielding Maryland woman who slashed a man’s throat at a Taco Bell in Oregon this past July — after he told her to “zip it” for berating the staff — was sentenced Thursday to 7 years in prison, according to a report.

Caley Mason, 22, pleaded guilty in Clackamas County in September to second-degree assault in the knife attack that gave 48-year-old Jason Luczkow an 8-inch gash across his face and throat and required 100 stitches.

On July 9, Luczkow said he walked into a Taco Bell in Sandy – about 30 miles east of Portland – and saw Mason, clad in a blonde wig, yelling at the employees for taking too long.

“Apparently the management had already told her to leave,” Luczkow said. “As she continued to rant and rave, I told her to be quiet. Told her to zip it.”

Mason left the restaurant but returned moments later with a knife and attacked Luczkow, Det. Sam Craven told The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Mason then sped off in a silver Kia Soul, nearly running over his wife in the process, Luczkow said. Police said they pulled her over with her boyfriend and two young children – ages 2 and 4 – in the car, according to Clackamas County prosecutor Matt Semritc.

Craven said police found Mason’s blonde wig “in the boyfriend’s pants.”

Mason was arrested and indicted on multiple criminal counts, including attempted murder, first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon, according to records cited by The Oregonian/OregonLive.
