A Kansas City area man is facing federal civil lawsuit for allegedly prescribing prescription drugs to people for money. Federal officials seized more than $1.7 million worth of property from Dr. James Webb who apparently left a mark throughout the metro.
DEA agents watched Dr. Webb for more than a year then they seized over a million dollars from a safe in his parents home and more than a million dollars in property including several guns and seven cars. The federal government filed a civil suit alleging Dr. Webb used an office building to sell prescription drugs without prescribing them to actual patients.
The company was called Sports Medicine Consultants. People who worked near him at the office building say while he was here, there were constantly people going in and out of his office. A delivery man was suspicious of activity happening here, and so were the office neighbors.
A piece of property which was once a "Nascar Racing Experience" business recently became Dr. Webb's.
According to a DEA investigator's affidavit, the property would have become Webb's new medical office, one which he reportedly bought using money from selling prescriptions illegally.
The last property to be seized is Dr. Webb's house in Parkville. A man who answered the door at Dr. Webb's home in Parkville woudln't comment on the case. The suit includes a statement from a DEA investigator who says Dr. Webb admitted to selling Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Hydrocodone and Percocet without treating any patients.
No criminal charges have been filed against Dr. Webb.
