Judge Orders Craig Turturo's GPS Anklet Removed

News
A judge in Indian River County has ordered the removal of Craig Turturo's GPS monitoring anklet. Turturo, of Boca Raton, was arrested as part of Operation Pill Street Blues.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — One of the two Pompano Beach firefighters arrested last summer and charged with prescription drug trafficking, money laundering and violations of the RICO act is free of GPS monitoring.

Craig Turturo, whose Boca Falls home was raided by DEA agents and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office last June is now free to go anywhere that he chooses.

A judge in Indian River County, where the State of Florida is prosecuting many pain clinic “pill mill” cases, originally ordered Turturo to be monitored with a GPS anklet following his release from jail.

The Judge's order suggests that prosecutors no longer consider Turturo to be a flight risk, and may indicate less confidence in the scores of charges against him.

Turturo is still required to appear in his attorney's office every few weeks and remains suspended from his firefighting job.

Prosecutors allege that Turturo was involved in illegally distributing pain medication through clinics that he and alleged co-conspirator Lewis Stouffer either owned or managed. Dubbed “Pill Street Blues,” Stouffer, also a Pompano Beach firefighter, was arrested with Tuturo and several others on June 27th.

The cases are expected to take several years.

Here are the charges filed against Turturo, according to public records provided by Indian River County:
