Former office manager at Pinellas Park doctor's office arrested

PINELLAS PARK — The former office manager at a doctor's office that authorities say was operating as a pill mill was arrested on multiple charges Monday.

Milo Harris, 31, of Tampa was arrested on charges of racketeering, conspiracy to commit racketeering and conspiracy to traffic oxycodone.

Harris worked as an office manager at the Pinellas Park clinic of Dr. Jacinta Gillis, who was arrested April 28 on similar charges, Pinellas sheriff's officials said. Gillis was accused of running a pill mill out of her Pinellas Park office and an office in Lee County.

The United States Marshal's Service Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Harris in Hillsborough County on Monday at the request of Pinellas sheriff's officials. He was being held at the Hillsborough County Jail on Monday night in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Pinellas investigators said Gillis, 41, scheduled five patients every 15 minutes, commonly seeing more than 60 a day, some by webcam. Her Pinellas Park office, Dollar Medical Clinics, was at 4427 Park Blvd.

She was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Friday after she posted $160,000 bail.
