SANFORD, Fla. — A Central Florida doctor has been charged in a multimillion-dollar drug conspiracy that investigators said started in Michigan and put hundreds of thousands of prescription pills out on the street. Dr. Juan Bayolo is accused of getting paid to illegally write opioid prescriptions for patients who had no need for the drugs. Records show he is still allowed to practice medicine and has two offices in Central Florida; one in Sanford and the other in Deltona. He was indicted last week in federal court along with several people from Michigan and another doctor licensed in Arizona.
