Mayfield Dentist Arrested on Felony Drug Charges
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - A Mayfield dentist and another man were arrested Wednesday on felony drug charges, after a months-long investigation into an alleged doctor-shopping and identity-theft scheme.

According to Kentucky State Police, drug investigators got a complaint last summer from the Kentucky Office of the Inspector General involving 55-year-old Dr. Wesley Mills and 56-year-old David Clymer, both of Mayfield, who were suspected of conspiring to obtain controlled substances by fraud. Police said they learned Mills and Clymer might also have used the identity of a non-consenting third party to obtain controlled substances.

On Feb. 9, a Graves County Grand Jury returned a four-count indictment charging Mills with two counts of conspiracy to obtain a controlled substance by fraud, commonly referred to as doctor-shopping. Mills was also charged with two counts of tampering with physical evidence.

A 10 count indictment was handed down for Clymer, charging him with two counts of conspiracy to obtain a controlled substance by fraud, six counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and two counts of theft of identity without consent.

Mills and Clymer turned themselves in on Wednesday to the Graves County Jail, where they were formally charged.  

A McCracken County Grand Jury later returned two additional counts against Mills for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.  

Police say their investigation is ongoing.
