Man charged in Medicaid fraud detained

A man charged in a multimillion dollar Medicaid fraud scheme with roots in Roanoke Rapids and Ahoskie made his first court appearance in North Carolina last week.

United States District Judge Richard E. Myers II ordered Timothy Mark Harron detained until the court can review a pretrial release order issued by a federal magistrate judge in the district of Nevada.

A hearing has been set before Myers on Aug. 26 in Wilmington so the court can review an appeal filed by the government challenging the pretrial release approved in Nevada.

A motion filed by United States Attorney Robert J. Higdon Jr. in May contends Harron would present a danger if allowed pretrial release.
