  • Pompano Beach doctor arrested at his office, feds say

    A Broward County doctor is among four people arrested and federally charged with conspiring to illegally dispense pain killers and other controlled substances, authorities announced Friday.

    Willem Ouw, 84, is accused of prescribing oxycodone, morphine and amphetamine without conducting proper medical examinations, federal prosecutors said.

    Ouw was arrested Thursday at his Pompano Beach office, Medical Center of North Broward, 38 NE 20th Ave., records show.

    Ouw was indicted on 10 counts and faces a maximum penalty of 20 years per count. He is currently in custody at the Broward Main Jail.

    The alleged conspiracy started in Dec. 2015, investigators said.

    Arrested with Ouw on one count each of conspiracy to unlawfully dispense oxcycodone were Belafonte “Quincy” Byard, 50, and Donna Licata, 62, both of Broward County, and Sarah Shoopman, 36, of Orange County.

    They are accused of taking cash payments, handling files and obtaining samples, federal prosecutors said.

    Federal authorities are also seeking forfeiture of Ouw’s properties in Pompano Beach and New Jersey, valued at more than $2.8 million, the indictment said.
