DETAILS OF INCIDENT:
This investigation was conducted by the Berks County District Attorney’s Narcotics Detectives and the Pennsylvania State Attorney General’s Office. The investigation began in April of 2017 after fraudulent prescriptions were found on a home visit by the Berks County Probation and Parole Office. The investigation revealed three co-conspirators engaged in illegally obtaining Schedule II opioid medication from pharmacies in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Two of the co-conspirators, Heather Baily and Stacy Delvalle were employed at a doctor’s office in Exeter Township, which gave them access to prescriptions and information that enabled them to perpetrate the crimes.
The scheme involved preparing fraudulent prescriptions and using a fictitious identity. The participants used the doctor’s name and his assigned DEA number to fill out prescriptions. One participant, Jorge Soler became a legitimate patient; obtained Oxycodone medication actually prescribed by the doctor, and then the co-conspirators sold the medication for profit.
At least forty-eight (48) forged prescriptions were passed to pharmacies in Berks County, and a total of at least 4,808 doses of dangerous Schedule II opiates were illegally obtained for distribution and consumption.
Additionally, Soler obtained fourteen (14) prescriptions for 2,340 doses from his doctor, which he subsequently sold illegally.
The amount of opioid pills totaled 7,148 in varying strengths (5mg to 30mg). Typically opioid pills are sold on the street for $1 per milligram making the total street value roughly $100,000. This diverted medication has been identified as a dangerous drug leading to drug overdoses and deaths in Berks County and throughout the country.
On January 8, 2019, detectives obtained arrest warrants for the three defendants. The warrants were issued by Magisterial District Judge Sandra L. Fegley.
On January 9, 2019, all three defendants surrendered to the Berks County District Attorney’s Narcotics Detectives at their office.
Heather Bailey's bail was set at $75,000 unsecured bail. She remains free on bail pending further court action.
Stacy Delvalle's bail was set at $40,000 monetary bail. She remains free on bail pending further court action.
Jorge Soler's bail was set at $40,000 monetary bail. He remains free on bail pending further court action.
A Criminal Complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless until proven guilty.
The investigation is still continuing.
