NEW YORK (AP) — The FBI says nine people, including a doctor, are charged with running a Manhattan drug ring.

Authorities say the doctor wrote fraudulent prescriptions. They say other participants sold the drugs, such as the painkiller OxyContin, on the streets.

Investigators were at a Harlem medical clinic on Thursday. Eight of the defendants, including the doctor, were awaiting court appearances.
