Western Md. Physician Faces Drug-Dealing Charges

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — A Cumberland physician faces charges of distributing narcotics and possessing marijuana.

Forty-eight-year-old anesthesiologist Rohan Mullings has a preliminary hearing Dec. 27. He was arrested Monday after an investigation by local and state police.

Police say they found the synthetic opiate fentanyl and the tranquilizer ketamine in Mullings’ home. He allegedly obtained prescriptions by fraud.

Mullings couldn’t be reached for comment. No defense attorney is listed in court records.

The Western Maryland Health System says Mullings no longer serves as medical director for pain management. He was with the Upper Chesapeake Health System in Bel Air before moving to Cumberland six years ago.
