(KSL News) Just days after a Murray doctor is arrested on drug charges comes word of another Utah doctor involved in a similar scheme.

Dr. Randall Relyea is accused of writing prescriptions for Oxycodone and Percocet, then getting the pills back from patients.

Investigators say Relyea would write a prescription for a patient or associate after doing them a favor. He'd pay the insurance co-pay to get the prescription filled, and the patient would give the pills back to Relyea.

It's unclear what Relyea was doing with the narcotics.
