A man arrested for selling fraudulent prescriptions through Craigslist and stealing the identities of two physicians was sentenced to 64 months in prison.

Dimitar Cvetkoski was arrested during a sting operation last February following an investigation led by the FBI and the police department of Madison Heights, a Detroit suburb. Cvetkoski posted ads on Craigslist for controlled substances, stating he was a resident at St. John Hospital in Detroit along with a photo of his ID badge. Cvetkoski had been an internal medicine resident but he left the program and his license lapsed in 2010.

Cvetkoski was arrested when an undercover police officer set up a meeting at a bar. Upon his arrest, police found prescription drug bottles, fraudulent prescriptions, and numerous credit card numbers in Cvetkoski’s possession. He admitted to credit card fraud, possessing about 130 credit card numbers.
