FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A man wanted for practicing medicine without a license turned himself in to Cumberland County Sheriff's deputies Thursday.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said Gillies was issuing fraudulent prescriptions and operating a business as a medical clinic without a physician present.

Narcotics agent raided Gillies business, RF Medical Clinic, located at 705 Cumberland Street, Wednesday.

He is scheduled to make a first court appearance on Friday.
