Douglas County police investigators suspect that Brent Stein, the 46-year-old Florissant pharmacist arrested in June on suspicion of sexual assault, may have had multiple victims.
According to a press release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, their detectives had been contacted by the Teller County Sheriff’s Office, who was responsible for the arrest of Stein, regarding other possible cases that may involve the accused pharmacist. This gave Douglas County Detectives reason to re-open a 2016 sexual assault investigation, in which Stein was a potential suspect. That is now an on-going investigation, and police have released no further information as of the time of the press release.
Because of the circumstances involved in both the Teller County and the Douglas County cases, investigators have strong reason to believe that there are other victims. They are asking that anyone who has been in contact with Stein, or who has any other information, call Detective Stephanie Dorrell at 303-814-7131 or Teller County Detective Y. Bisset at 719-304-5756.
Stein’s arrest on June 21st stemmed from a sexual assault allegation made against him by a woman claiming she had met Stein through on online dating site. Stein, who is the owner of the Mountain Key Pharmacy in Florissant, explained that he was a pharmacist and claimed he could help her overcome a medical condition that was troubling her.
The woman traveled from her home in Indiana to meet with Stein at his residence, and there, she alleges she was drugged and sexually assaulted by stein, multiple times over the course of multiple days. Due to the severe results of the multiple assaults and the drugs she was given by Stein, the woman had to be taken to the emergency room.
Stein is still the owner of Mountain Key Pharmacy, even though his license was suspended after his arrest in June. Even when he was still a licensed pharmacist, he was not licensed to prescribe medications, according to the Teller County Sheriff’s Office. This is an issue because the drugs that Stein allegedly used to incapacitate his victim, were apparently prescribed to Stein through his pharmacy.
Stein has apparently lived in Teller and Douglas Counties for several years, and he has worked at other pharmacies throughout the area within that time. In fact, at the time of the alleged assault, Stein was on probation due to a domestic violence and harassment conviction leveled against him in 2019, according to an affidavit.
