DEA and Florida Department of Health Bust Treasure Coast Pharmacy

Treasure Coast Pharmacy, a Florida compounding pharmacy was raided by DEA agents just before 9:00 AM Tuesday morning.Witnesses in the shopping center said they saw DEA Agents draw weapons, breach the front door and remove things from the premises.

DEA spokesman, David Melenkevitz, would only say that this was part of an ongoing federal investigation and no one was arrested as of  Tuesday.

An immediate suspension order, as it is called by the DEA was served to the pharmacy, preventing Treasure Coast from selling any and all controlled substances. The Florida Department of Health also stepped in issuing an emergency order to close the facility. Customers of the pharmacy have been advised to contact their doctors if they need a prescription filled.
