KINGMAN — The alleged mastermind of a Bullhead City opioid ring was arrested early Monday at a casino in Henderson, Nev.
Henderson police officers arrested Amanda Lee Doyle, 29, of Fort Mohave, around 1 a.m. at the Sunset Station Hotel and Casino. She was booked on a Mohave County fugitive warrant and a Nevada warrant for contempt of court, Arizona Attorney General’s Office spokeswoman Mia Garcia said.
Doyle is charged by the attorney general’s office with two counts of fraudulent schemes and artifices, eight counts of acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud, seven counts of computer tampering, eight counts of forgery and one count of taking the identity of another.
Doyle, who worked at a Bullhead City doctor’s office, and seven others were indicted for their alleged involvement in an opioid ring.
Darcia Haley Rohrer, 20, of Mohave Valley, is charged with two counts of acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud and two counts of forgery. She is being held in custody on a $5,000 bond.
Mark Christopher Mannor, 27, of Needles, is charged with two counts of fraud, three counts of acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud and three counts of forgery. He is being held on a $10,000 bond.
Koryn Elle Tinnell, 22, of Needles, and Jordan Waters, 21, of Fort Mohave, were arraigned Oct. 26 on charges of fraud, acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud and forgery. They are not in custody.
Matthew Austin Solari, 30, of Needles, is charged with fraud, acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud and forgery. He has been released from custody.
Gavin Robel, 25, of Lake Havasu City, is charged with fraud, acquisition of a narcotic drug by fraud and forgery. Robel was recently arrested in California.
An eighth suspect was indicted on five felony counts but has not been identified. All 55 counts are for offenses alleged to have occurred between October 2015 and January 2016.
Doyle had worked as a billing assistant at a Bullhead City medical office. She allegedly used her position to create fake electronic prescriptions for oxycodone tablets, then recruited patients so she could create fictitious profiles to write the prescriptions.
Those patients were never seen by a doctor. Doyle allegedly wrote fraudulent prescriptions, then demanded the patients give back some of the oxycodone tablets after their prescriptions were filled.
