Francis Gartland indicted; no word on Ritacco yet June 10, 2010

Posted by tsclaw2209 in News.

Francis Gartland, his associates and companies have been indicted by a state grand jury.  Ritacco however, was not indicted.  This is because there is a state investigation and a federal investigation.  Ritacco appears to only be involved in the federal investigation.  However, the state indictment sheds some light on what may be going on here.

The State alleges that Gartland and his company got Perth Amboy officials to authorize them to increase rates beginning in 2007 to pay for a program providing health counseling and fitness training.  The city was charged $15 per employee per month with the payments going to a company named East Coast Administrative Services, which shares an address in Towson, Md., with Federal Hill.  However, there was no counseling or fitness training and  East Coast Administrative Services received $216,495, which mostly went to the defendants and Federal Hill.

Makes you wonder what went on in Toms River.  Since the raid earlier this week, Federal Hill seems to have closed down.

Story is here.
