Call 6: DEA raids Indianapolis pain management center

INDIANAPOLIS -- Authorities raided several doctors' offices Friday – part of a crackdown on painkillers in Central Indiana.

Sources told Call 6 Investigator Paris Lewbel that DEA agents had raided three officed of Dr. Tristan Stonger.

Stonger runs three pain management centers in Peru, Bloomington and the southside of Indianapolis called the Pain Management Centers of Indiana.

Officials said the raids surrounded allegations of misprescribing and overdoses.

The Bloomington pain management center is no stranger to the DEA. It was previously the center of a Call 6 Investigation, and was the same office Dr. Kamal Tiwari owned before he lost his medical license and was sent to prison in 2012 for performing medically unnecessary procedures.

Stonger took over the center after Tiwari lost his license.

No one was arrested as a result of the raids, but authorities did seize files and other evidence.
