Trial set for Scottsdale surgeon accused of stealing cocaine

PHOENIX — An April 21 trial has been scheduled for a plastic surgeon
accused of breaking into a Scottsdale medical office to steal medicinal cocaine.

Dr. Paul Kenneth Holden has pleaded not guilty to a felony burglary charge.

Authorities said Holden, 42, sneaked into the North Valley Surgical Center, which is in the same building as his office, to steal five vials of the drug.

Police said a woman who was cleaning the office late at night in July discovered
Holden hiding behind a metal rack in a hall next to the pharmacy.

The woman said Holden chased her and assured her that nothing abnormal was
going on.

Holden then went into the pharmacy while the woman resumed her work.

Authorities said people who worked at the building recognized Holden from
security footage.
