Dr. Alvin Mingczech Yee, of Mission Viejo was arrested at his Irvine office on Tuesday night by DEA agents, Orange County Sheriff Deputies and Huntington Beach Police. A 56-count grand jury indictment charges Yee with prescribing drugs outside the usual course of professional practice and without legitimate medical purpose. Authorities say, Yee was often at Starbucks late at night selling prescriptions for cash. Such prescriptions included narcotics such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, vicodin, xanax, adderall and suboxone.
If convicted, Yee faces up to 40 years in federal prison along with a revocation of his California Medical license.
