AG ANNOUNCES ARREST OF MADISON DOCTOR
FOR THEFT FROM ALABAMA MEDICAID AGENCY
(MONTGOMERY)–Attorney General Luther Strange announced the arrest
this morning of a Madison physician on charges that he stole more than $7,000 from
the Alabama Medicaid Agency. Iqbal Ahmed Memon, 51, was arrested by the
Madison County Sheriff’s Department, with a bond set at $10,000. Memon is being
held by Madison County authorities, awaiting transport to Montgomery County,
where he was indicted.
Attorney General Strange’s Office presented evidence to a Montgomery
County grand jury during its June 2013 term, resulting Memon’s indictment*.
Specifically, the indictment charges Memon with two counts of first-degree theft of
property, a class B felony. If convicted, Memon faces a maximum penalty of two to
20 years imprisonment and fine of up to $60,000 for each of the two counts with
which he is charged.
Memon was investigated by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit after a referral from the Alabama Medicaid Agency’s Program Integrity
Division. The case is being prosecuted by the Unit’s director, Assistant Attorney
General Bruce Lieberman.
No further information about the investigation or about Memon’s alleged
crimes other than that stated in the indictment may be released at this time.
*An indictment is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
