Man arrested and charged with double-doctoring


The RCMP in Burin along with the Federal Operations Section have arrested and charged a 38-year-old Marystown man with double-doctoring.

The phrase double doctoring, which is also known as doctor shopping, refers to the deliberate use of more than one physician in order to obtain prescriptions for a greater amount of medications than would be prescribed by a single physician.

Kiley Foote also faces nine charges of breaching a court order.

Mr. Foote is scheduled to appear in Grand Bank Provincial Court this afternoon.
