May 1, 2018 – A 71-year-old California doctor was arrested last week after he allegedly prescribed opioids to four undercover agents. The arrest of Sawtantra Kumar Chopra, M.D., of Modesto, was the result of a yearlong investigation involving both state and federal law enforcement agencies that began when pharmacies in the Sacramento area called in tips about his suspicious prescribing practices.

Chopra, a pulmonary and sleep medicine specialist, was arrested April 26 and charged with prescribing opioids to patients outside the usual course of professional practice and without a legitimate medical purpose, according to an announcement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California.
