GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - A former Johnson City pharmacist is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Greeneville Tuesday afternoon.
Thomas Patrick Rowan is expected to formally plead guilty on charges that he took thousands of pills from his two pharmacies and developed a scheme to cover it up.
According to a plea agreement filed earlier this month, Rowan admitted he has been addicted to Oxycodone and Xanax since the late 1980s. He also admitted to making fake prescriptions and prescription bottles for his personal use.
Rowan owns Family Pharmacy in Fall Branch and Boones Creek Pharmacy in Johnson City. The state suspended his license indefinitely in August.
