Federal agents on scene of Easton pharmacy, NJ health care company

VIDEO: Easton pharmacy federal activity

EASTON, Pa. - A pharmacy in Easton and a health care management company in Milford, New Jersey, were the scenes of substantial federal activity Thursday.

Agents with the Office of the Inspector General were seen removing boxes and other items from the Keystone Choice Pharmacy in Easton and Global Healthcare Management in Milford.

Residents said agents were on the scene in Milford almost all day Thursday.

Both businesses are associated with Jon Paul Letko, who, along with his brother, Edward Letko, agreed to pay the United States more than $12 million in 2016 to resolve allegations that they violated the federal False Claims Act.

According to the Department of Justice, the brothers allegedly used a fictitious entity to make unsolicited telephone calls to Medicare beneficiaries in order to sell them medical equipment.

Authorities have not commented on the activity seen in Easton and Milford.
