BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Hamburg doctor that previously pleaded guilty to illegally importing heroin and cocaine has been sentenced to time served.

55-year-old Dr. Torin Finver pleaded guilty to illegally importing heroin and cocaine in January.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced Wednesday Finver has been sentenced to time served, approximately eight months.

In November 2018, Customs and Border Protection officers tested a parcel at the Chicago, Illinois office addressed to "T Finver," with a Hamburg, New York address. The parcel was sent from Germany with fake sender information. It eventually was tested for cocaine and the results came back positive.

After a number of other packages were inspected, Finver was eventually busted in December 2018 by an undercover agent who delivered a parcel to his Hamburg residence.

Finver admitted to ordering heroin and cocaine from the Dream Market marketplace. He used Bitcoin to pay for the drugs.
