Cops: Warren man charged with illegal prescriptions, identity theft
Authorities have arrested and charged a 40-year-old Warren man for trying to illegally sell prescription drugs to an undercover cop and stealing other people's identities.
Dimitar Cvetkoski has been formally charged in a district court in Madison Heights with several crimes, including three felony counts of intent to deliver controlled substances, one count of possessing personal identifying information with the intent to commit identity theft, and one count of possessing counterfeit prescription forms.
A judge ordered Cvetkoski held on a $66,000 bond and scheduled his next court appearance for February 28.
If convicted, he could face up to life in prison for the controlled substance charges.
Police said officers began investigating a man, who was later identified as Cvetkoski, for advertising himself on Craigslist in the "Men seeking women" category.
The suspect told prospective customers that he was a doctor and that he had prescription medications and "party favors" available at a Madison Heights hotel.
Detectives learned Cvetkoski had several outstanding warrants for his arrest. They also learned he had a State of Michigan medical license that expired June 30, 2010.
Madison Heights Police detectives with the help of the Oakland County Sheriff's Narcotic Enforcement Team and the Troy Police Special Investigation Unit arrested Cvetkoski last week Wednesday at about 2:40 p.m. at the hotel.
During a police raid, detectives recovered prescription medications and numerous fraudulently manufactured prescription pads, officials said.
They also found hundreds of credit card numbers and the personal information of other potential identity theft victims, according to police.
