NEW JERSEY, NORTH ARLINGTON Federal investigators have charged a man from North Arlington with illegally pushing amphetamines to patients who did not medically require them. The man worked as an office manager for a medical practice in North Jersey.

Noel DeLeon, 55, of North Arlington, New Jersey, pled guilty by videoconference to one count of conspiracy to distribute dextroamphetamine-amphetamine (labeled Adderall), a Schedule II prohibited substance, outside of the regular course of medical practice.

DeLeon worked as the office manager at a New Jersey medical clinic owned by doctors from January 2018 till March 2021. The medical facility failed to adequately document the patient’s medical history.

It took the doctor less than five minutes to see each patient, and he or she did not conduct any in-depth evaluations.

For some patients, all that was included in their medical records beyond contact details and medication was a list of medications and dosages. No patient records were kept for the other patients.

Before writing a prescription for any medication, including heavy doses of amphetamines, DeLeon or the doctor would often request payment in cash. Patients might reach DeLeon for refills via text message to his personal cell phone.

DeLeon would have the patient’s pharmacist reorder the medication and collect a payment, generally through an electronic payment app on DeLeon’s own cellular phone. DeLeon discovered that he could entice some patients into getting their prescriptions refilled more quickly with cash.
