Drogueria Betances LLC will pay $12 million and will make extensive compliance and reporting improvements as required under a consent decree, for its failures to report suspicious orders and make required reports to the DEA. One of Puerto Rico’s largest pharmaceutical drugs distributors, Betances failed to report to the DEA hundreds of “suspicious orders” for fentanyl and oxycodone from 2016 through at least June 2019. Additionally, from May 2017 to July 2018, Betances failed to report to the DEA all of the more than 7.8 million dosage units of Schedule II opioids distributed, committed hundreds of recordkeeping violations, filled orders placed with defective order forms, and gave inaccurate shipping or delivery information to the DEA. DOJ
