Four Pill Mill Defendants Released On Bond

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - All four of the suspects accused of running an illegal prescription drug ring in Biloxi are getting out of jail.

Tuesday, Dr. Victoria Van, office manager Richard Trieu and pharmacist Nick Tran were released on a $100,000 unsecured bond.  Dr. Thomas Trieu is being released on a $100,000 secured bond, and will be placed under house arrest.

All four have been in jail since their offices were raided back in May. The government opposed releasing Dr. Trieu, since more charges are pending against him.

Steve Phillips was in federal court today and will have more on the bond hearing tonight on WLOX News.
