York Dentist Accused 3-5-08 – YORK – Dr. Mark Brouillette, 48, a longtime York dentist, was arrested yesterday around noon, at his office, by officers with the Nebraska State Patrol, the York County Sheriff’s Department and the York Police Department. He is accused of illicitly prescribing painkillers. The Nebraska State Patrol says that the arrest came after a seven-month long investigation by the Rural Apprehension (RAP) Drug Task Force. He was officially booked on “suspicion of illegally distributing pharmaceutically controlled substances.” At noon, investigators executed a search warrant on his office at 622 Burlington Ave., in York. The investigation into Dr. Brouillette’s practices began when local law enforcement received information alleging the dentist was providing illicit prescription pain medication to several individuals. The investigation into the allegations continues. He was arrested and taken to the York County Jail. Deb Collins, spokesperson for the state patrol, said the charges of Distribution of a Controlled Substance are “multiple.” The number of charges was not available as of press time – but distribution is a Class III felony that carries a possible maximum sentence of 1-20 years in prison, per count. Local law enforcement and the NSP were assisted in the investigation by the Nebraska Department of Health, the Drug Enforcement Administration and members of the RAP Drug Task Force. More than 30 law enforcement agencies in southeast Nebraska contribute to the RAP Drug Task Force
