Mobile “Pill Mill” Cars Seized from Disgraced Doctors Going on Auction Block


MOBILE, AL (WKRG) – A collection of exotic cars, everything from Ferraris to a Corvette is going up on the auction block. The expensive cars were seized as part of a pill mill bust that left two Mobile doctors headed to prison.

Dr. John Patrick Couch and Dr. Xiulu Ruan were found guilty on 19 of 20 counts.  The verdict was the culmination of a month-long trial into Couch and Ruan, who were accused of “excessive and dangerous” painkiller prescribing practices at their clinic, Physician’s Pain Specialists of Alabama (PPSA).

Federal investigators were thorough and methodical in their pursuit of Couch and Ruan.  The affidavit also included a lengthy section about Dr. Ruan’s collection of exotic cars, which he kept hidden in a warehouse in Mobile. Couch also had his own collection.

Now those cars are set to go to auction on October 20th. If you have the means, and are interested in taking part you can click here for more information.
