Rescue Squad Trial
The federal government has been busy in day 2 of the Saltville Rescue Squads fraud trial in federal court in Abingdon. Investigators are trying to get $880,000 back that Saltville Rescue Squad obtained in allegedly fraudulent billing to insurance companies. Prosecutors contend it was a plot to steal millions of dollars with fake medical claims and they will need 2 weeks to prove that to 14 jurors who had been seated to hear the case. Ambulances, emergency equipment, and even rescue squad land could be taken and sold if the incorporated group is found guilty of the accusations. The Saltville Volunteer Fire Department Is holding some hope that they can re-coup some of that equipment and operate a rescue squad service if the present organization and leader Eddie Wayne Louthian, Sr. are found guilty and fined or imprisoned. Nearby rescue squads have offered their assistance to the Saltville community.(CS)
