PLANO (AP) – Some North Texas police departments are sharing nearly $900,000 in the last money forfeited from an Internet-based pharmacy scam.

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced funds for departments in Rowlett, Duncanville, Mesquite, Irving and Dallas. Money from the scheme run by David Allen Vogel of New York also benefits the Texas Joint Counterdrug Task Force, plus police in Alton Bay, N.H., where Vogel owned property.

Vogel in 2010 was convicted of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, conspiracy to commit money laundering and money laundering. Investigators say hydrocodone and other controlled substances were sold without valid prescriptions.

Vogel, who owned the Dallas-based Madison Pain Clinic, was sentenced to 20 years in prison and ordered to pay $29 million.

This week’s funds are the final payments to agencies involved in the investigation.
