A Lake Charles man is accused of 84 counts of obtaining CDS by fraud, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing, and CPSO Vice detectives are working with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners on the case.
