Nassau County Police arrested a Greenvale doctor on drug and prescription forgery charges Monday after finding a horde of pills and prescription sheets in his parked car.
Dr. Edmond Hakimi, 32, is charged with three counts of second-degree forgery and seven counts seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after a search of his 2013 Jeep yielded a number of pills.
