Dr. Charles E. Myers, 65, and his 30-year-old daughter Autumn B. Myers were charged Wednesday for dealing in controlled substances.

legitimate medical purpose and outside the course of licensed practice, then the
Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has jurisdiction to investigate and
assist other law enforcement agencies," said Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller. "My office appreciates the hard work of Prosecutor Michael Dvorak, the Indiana State Police and the Mishawaka Police on this complicated investigation."
