Albany-  An Albany drug store seized by the county in October will not be returned to the managing pharmacist and the case against him and the pharmacy will continue. 

During a hearing Tuesday, Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges asked Judge Loring Gray to extend the receivership for TLC Drug.  Friday, Judge Gray agreed to do that.  October fourth,

Prosecutors filed a civil complaint against majority owner and pharmacist Thomas McSwain, the drug store, and Dr. George Lawrence.  The complaint alleged Lawrence over prescribed high-powered painkillers,  and the pharmacy filled most of those prescriptions. 

The pharmacy will remain open, operated by an Atlanta attorney. 

Judge Gray also denied the defense's request to drop the civil complaint.
