Pharmacist accused of selling drugs


A pharmacist who once filled prescriptions in the Texarkana area is scheduled to appear before a judge Friday in Bowie County on 12 felony drug charges.

David Edward Tetreau, 33, allegedly sold multiple prescription pills, liquid codeine and marijuana to an undercover agent working with the Special Investigation Unit of the Texarkana, Texas, Police Department in April 2017, according to a probable cause affidavit. Tetreau allegedly accepted $1,100 during two buys April 24, 2017.

Tetreau was allegedly paid $500 in exchange for 22 oxycodone pills, 31 Valium tablets, 29 Concerta pills, six lorazepam, 209 green Xanax, two yellow Xanax, and four white Xanax. Later the same day, Tetreau allegedly was paid $600 for 18 oxycodone pills, 30 Concerta pills, 31 blue Valium, five lorazepam, 197 green Xanax, two yellow Xanax, 16 white Xanax, 72 grams of liquid codeine and .3 ounces of marijuana.

Online searches indicate that Tetreau has worked at several Texarkana pharmacies, including Walgreens and Walmart.

According to the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, Tetreau graduated in 2009 from pharmacy school at the University of Louisiana at Monroe and received his license in 2010. The state board’s website indicates Tetreau’s license expires in 2020.

Tetreau is scheduled to appear Friday before 5th District Judge Bill Miller for a pre-indictment hearing.
