Bond Set At $1.1-Million For Boca Falls Resident Craig Turturo

Uncategorized

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has learned from the Indian River Sheriff's Department that suspended Pompano Beach Firefighter and Boca Falls homeowner Craig Turturo is now being held in lieu of nearly $1.2-Million bond.

Tuturo faces 57 counts of trafficking and delivering controlled substances including Oxycodone, Morphine and Oxy Hydrocloride, in addition to charges of felony racketeering and money laundering.

He was arraigned Thursday in Indian River County.

Turturo was apparently taken into custody at the Pompano Beach Fire Department — where he works — while DEA Agents and a SWAT team from the Palm Beach County Sherrif's Office staged an assault on his Boca Falls home.

Turturo and fellow Pompano Beach Firefighter Lewis Stouffer are accused of running pain clinics that indiscriminantly distributed pain medicine. The arrests — with 12 others, including doctors and managers — were part of a statewide operation dubbed “Pill Street Blues.” Pain clinics have been called “pill mills” and are a target of Florida Governor Rick Scott.

Despite the sevrerity of the charges against Turturo, the Drug Enforcement Administration — which led the investigation — is being noticeably silent regarding its alleged case against Turturo. Several calls to the agency's regional public information officer have gone unreturned.

Additionally, there is no record of federal charges against Turturo in the federal “Pacer” system, despite the DEA's presence at his home.

  1. Lets see what His princess does when she has no money ,,,,, She and He should be ashamed of themselves …. She knew he knew ,,,,

  2. Would love an update on this big news. Turturo has stated he is innocent, so lets hear why? Was he innocent when he spent big bucks on all his toys, vacations, social gatherings, BBC membership etc. If the feds simultaneously arrested him at work while serving a search warrant at his home, they must have something on him. And don’t forget, they were wire tapping and had Turturo under surveillance prior to his arrest. It sickens me that he says he will be vindicated. Was he not a partner, did he not put up signs in November on the highway to lure people to the Pain Management clinic he was a partner of? Vindicated? Please.
