Delaware Doctor Who Illegally Sold Controlled Substances On The Silk Road Drug Marketplace Sentenced To Five Years In Prison

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Middle District of Florida

Orlando, FL – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton today sentenced Olivia Bolles a/k/a “MDpro” (32, Newark, Delaware) to five years in federal prison for the illegal distribution of controlled substances.  She pleaded guilty on January 20, 2015.

According to court documents, between March 2013 and October 2, 2013, Bolles, a licensed medical doctor in Delaware, operated as the vendor “MDPro” on an underground website known as Silk Road.  Silk Road operated as an online criminal marketplace designed to enable its users to buy and sell drugs and other illegal goods and services anonymously, outside the reach of law enforcement.  The website provided a sales platform for vendors and buyers to conduct transactions online.

Between June 13, 2013, and August 20, 2013, DEA purchased oxycodone, heroin, diazepam, Xanax, Adderall, hash oil, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and Vyvanse from “MDPro” on the Silk Road website.  The investigation determined that Bolles had shipped the controlled substances, which were purchased from “MDPro,” from Delaware to Florida.  The investigation also found that Bolles had used her personal bank accounts to purchase items that were used to further her illegal drug dealing business, including packaging and laboratory materials.  More than 600 sales of controlled substances were mailed by Bolles and her girlfriend, Alexandra Gold, to individuals in more than 17 different countries. Gold was previously sentenced to 30 months in prison for her role in this case.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (Orlando and Wilmington, Delaware), with assistance from the United States Postal Inspection Service.  It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David Haas.
