Physician Charged with Possessing Crack Cocaine

On November 28, 2012, the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of New York reported that a physician in Youngstown, New York named Daniel C Gillick and a woman, Christine D Guilfoyle, were arrested for possessing crack cocaine.  Guilfoyle is also from Youngstown.  

Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy C. Lynch is covering the case.  He stated that DEA agents stopped Christine Guilfoyle’s vehicles on November 27, 2012 and found an undocumented amount of crack cocaine on her possession.  

After she was arrested, she told the DEA agents that she purchased the crack cocaine from Daniel Gillick.  She also said that she and Gillick were going to use the drugs later in the evening.  

Gillick is currently a physician at Medina Memorial Hospital and Schuyler Hospital.  He works as an emergency room physician.  

A federal search warrant was issued for Daniel Gillick’s house on 230 Main Street soon after Guilfoyle’s arrest.  During the search, federal agents found drug paraphernalia and other evidence that was linked to drug use.  

Gillick and Guilfoyle made their initial appearance on November 28 in front of Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott.  Bond for both of the defendants was set at $5,000, and Guilfoyle will be ordered to enter an inpatient drug treatment program.  

The investigation was led by the DEA, the FBI, the Amerherst Police Department, the Buffalo Police Department, the Lancaster Police Department, the Erie County Sheriff’s Department, the Depew Police Department, and the Niagara County Sheriff’s Drug Task Force.  

Neither defendant has been convicted of the crime as of yet and remain innocent until proven guilty.  They are scheduled to appear in court again on November 20, 2012.
