JAY – The owner of an Internet pharmacy shut down by state and federal agencies is free on $46,250 bail after surrendering to authorities on Wednesday, a prosecutor said.
Norman Edward Enyart Jr., also is known as J.R. Enyart, surrendered to authorities and has retained a lawyer, said Bryce Lair, assistant district attorney.
James Wallace, Enyart’s attorney was unavailable for comment.
Lair said charges against Enyart as well as his brother, Randolph Earl Enyart, 45; Kristina Donohoe, 25; and Tammy Walker, 37, all of Grove, are pending..
On Friday, investigators raided two homes and two storage units, seizing 2,000 prescription pills, prescriptions, prescription orders, 25 to 30 guns, computers, $17,000 in cash and more than 3,000 cartons of cigarettes lacking the required state tax stamps.
The pharmacy formerly operated on tribal land near Grove through an arrangement with the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe, but Enyart has since been asked to leave after failing to pay the tribe tobacco tax money. .
State Pharmacy Board records show Enyart was rejected for a state license in October 2005. He admitted having been convicted of a felony but couldn't recall whether he had served jail time, board meeting minutes show.
