THE BRONX - Two dozen people have been indicted in connection to an alleged oxycodone distribution ring led by a doctor operating out of a clinic on Southern Boulevard.

Neighbors say hundreds of people would line up daily outside Astramed Physicians, which they found suspicious. The long lines were allegedly for oxycodone prescriptions. 

According to federal prosecutors, Dr. Robert Terdiman wrote prescriptions for 5.5 million oxycodone pills since June 2012. Terdiman is believed to be the head of the pill mill.

Terdiman is being held without bail and is due back in court Feb. 19.
