LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada judge set bail at $500,000 and ordered a Las Vegas doctor to surrender his passports following his arrest on allegations he improperly prescribed painkillers to undercover police officers in northeast Arizona.
A court spokesman said Thursday that Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Smith decided Dr. Albert Szu Sun Yeh won't be immediately transferred in custody to Phoenix. Smith instead set a status hearing July 28.
Yeh remained Thursday at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas following his arrest earlier this month on a warrant issued in Arizona on charges of conspiracy, assisting a criminal syndicate, money laundering and administering a narcotic drug.
Yeh is accused of prescribing drugs including Oxycodone and Hydrocodone to undercover officers at his part-time clinic in Golden Valley, Ariz.src="http://js-kit.com/for/kolotv.com/comments.js">
