Bristow man charged with operating a medical practice in Manassas without a license

Peter Bodunrin ADENIJI, 67, of 9050 Cottage Lp in Bristow, is being held without bond until his Sept. 2 court date after he was arrested July 25 and charged on 17 counts in connection with a narcotics investigation, according to a news release from Sgt. Jonathan Perok, Prince William County Police Department spokesman.

The allegations are five counts of obtaining money by false pretenses, seven counts of operating a medical practice without a license, four counts of dispensing drugs without a license and one count of money laundering.

The charges stem from a two-month investigation conducted by detectives from the Prince William-Manassas-Manassas Park Narcotics Task Force into “a malpractice operation being conducted at the Integrated Health and Wellness Medical Practice located at 9300 Forest Point Cir in the City of Manassas (20110),” Perok said.

Manassas City Police initially received a tip in May that the accused was allegedly operating a medical practice without a license and supposedly providing a “cure for cancer.” The information received was turned over to the joint Narcotics Task Force for further investigation.

In June, an undercover detective purchased the alleged medication from the accused. During the consultation, the accused discouraged traditional cancer treatments and made fraudulent statements to sell his medication for approximately $1,200 per bottle, according to the police department report.

On July 25, detectives obtained and executed search warrants at the home of the accused, his practice, and, a P.O. box which the accused used to ship his medications.

As a result of the searches, medicine, additional ingredients to produce more drugs, and approximately $17,000 were recovered, according to the police report.

The medicine being sold by the accused was collected for further analysis by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Following the investigation, the accused, identified as Peter Bodunrin ADENIJI, was arrested without incident.

Police said that information obtained during the course of the investigation indicated that the accused may have had patients across the United States and internationally. Anyone who believes he or she may have been a victim is asked to call 703-686-6522. The investigation is continuing.
