Chesapeake Doctor Indicted on Narcotics Charges

A federal grand jury indicted Dr. Sidney Loxley on 91 counts in U.S. District Court in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Loxley, age 62, and his wife Carol Dean Loxley, a/k/a Carol Ann Dean, age 39, both of Chesapeake, Virginia, were arrested on January 19, 2005.

The indictment charged Sidney Loxley, Carol Dean Loxley, and Orthopedic Surgeons, LTD with 83 controlled substance counts, including conspiracy to traffic and trafficking resulting in death; seven monetary counts, including laundering and transactions in criminally derived property; and one count of removal of property to prevent seizure. The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Paul J. McNulty, also seeks forfeiture of the defendants’ property, including the offices of Sidney Loxley, M.D. in Chesapeake, Virginia. If convicted of the “death resulting” counts, they face a maximum of life imprisonment and a maximum fine of $1 million.

These arrests were made as a result of an investigation of suspicious deaths and the overdoses of several of Dr. Loxley’s patients. Law enforcement officials from the Norfolk and Richmond offices of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Chesapeake Police Department executed federal search warrants for his offices, home and vehicles and collectively conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Laura Tayman and Nancy Parr, Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Chesapeake and Special Assistant United States Attorney are prosecuting this case for the United States.
