A doctor has been arrested on suspicion of fraud.

The Johnstown Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration said it began investigating Dr. Kenneth Allen Pettine in April on allegations of fraudulent prescription activity.

Investigators said they searched Pettine's office in May and issued an arrest warrant last week on eight counts of fraud and deceit.

Pettine turned himself in Saturday. His bond was set at $10,000.

Several websites list Pettine as an orthopedic surgeon.
