Police officers in Michigan found 14 containers of human tissue and other evidence in a obstetrician/gynecologist’s car that indicate he may be providing illegal abortions.

Local Detroit news outlet WXYZ reported that police in West Bloomfield recently raided the vehicle of OB/GYN Michael Arthur Roth, who has been practicing medicine for more than 30 years.

According to sources, authorities discovered 14 containers of human tissue, which may include fetuses, in the trunk of his car. Police also found medical equipment and the drug Fentanyl used for pain and sedation in his vehicle.

Roth is now under investigation for possibly giving illegal abortions but does not yet face charges.

The doctor’s car was impounded two weeks ago when he struck and seriously injured a child in Orchard Lake, Michigan. Last week, police obtained a warrant to search the car for its "black box" data recorder. They then discovered the human tissue and medical supplies.

The Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office has taken possession of the containers of tissue.

Roth’s practice, the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center, was evicted from its office space last year. The practice touted its "safe" and "reliable" medical services.

"At the office of Dr. Michael A. Roth, our office philosophy is to provide safe, complete, convenient and reliable services within a comfortable atmosphere. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Roth strives to provide the best possible care for his patients," a web page for the doctor reads.

Roth has a history of malpractice allegations related to abortion practices.
