Orlando, Florida - United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announces the unsealing of an indictment charging Ardovan Moayer (25, Lake Mary), Shawhin Besharat (24,Sanford), Wayne McGilvray (22, Lake Mary), and Keyan Hasseli (19, Boca), with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and possession with intent to distribute oxycodone. If convicted on all counts, Moayer faces a maximum penalty of 80 years in federal prison. Besharat, McGilvray, and Haselli face a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. Further, in a related case, the United States Attorney announces the filing of a criminal complaint charging pharmacist Youssef Saleeb (27, Winter Park, Florida) with conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. Along with the charging of these individuals, Drug Enforcement Administration agents have executed search warrants at The Medicine Shoppe pharmacy located at 3796 Howell Branch Road, Winter Park, Florida, and at Saleeb's residence in Winter Park.

According to court documents, Saleeb, a pharmacist at The Medicine Shoppe, provided over 15,000 oxycodone pills from the shelves of The Medicine Shoppe to Moayer, a pharmacy technician at The Medicine Shoppe. Moayer, with the help of Besharat, McGilvray, and Hasseli, distributed this oxycodone on the street. The oxycodone involved in this investigation traveled as far as Tennessee.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Vincent S. Chiu.
