Redondo Beach Doctor Facing Multiple Drug Charges, Arrested Again On 2 Million Prescription Drug Stash

Another case for those who are still wondering about Yes On 46, These doctors need to be put on watch. Prop 46 will prevent doctor turned drug dealers from operating. It must be really profitable than actual medical work.

A Redondo Beach doctor already charged in two drug cases was arrested Tuesday on charges that he illegally possessed an estimated $2 million in diet pills and other prescription drugs that were found in a Long Beach storage facility.
Dr. Gerard Geoffrey Goryl, who had been barred from possessing narcotics as a result of the two previous pending cases, is now charged with 18 felony drug-related counts in a third case.
The neurologist pleaded not guilty to the latest charges, which include eight counts of possession of narcotics with a restricted license and 10 counts of possession for sale of a controlled substance.
Goryl, 59, was taken into custody after the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Redondo Beach Police Department determined that he had a storage locker containing an estimated 500,000 diet pills and other prescription drugs, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The physician was ordered to remain in jail on $1 million bail in connection with the latest case. He had been free on $1 million bail and $120,000 bail in the other two cases against him.
Goryl, who ran a medical clinic called A Better Weigh on Artesia Boulevard, was first arrested in June and charged with nine felony counts involving allegations that he sold prescription drugs to undercover officers.
He was rearrested in August and charged with eight felony counts alleging that he was continuing to sell a prescription diet pill despite being barred from doing so.
A date is scheduled to be set Nov. 17 for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require him to stand trial.
If convicted in all three cases, he faces up to 36 years and eight months behind bars, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
