EASTON, CONN. -- An ailing Easton man got probation Friday for tricking numerous doctors out of prescriptions for painkillers, which he then sold for a profit, according to a report by The Connecticut Post.

Curtis Pistey, 56, and his wife, Joann, 55, ran a major pill operation that authorities say spurred heroin addictions in the community, The Connecticut Post reported.

Pistey gathered up prescriptions for OxyContin, methadone and other narcotics and filled them at the Norwalk Hospital Pharmacy, The Connecticut Post reported.

Because of his ill health, Pistey was sentenced in a Bridgeport court to six months of home confinement and five years’ probation. His wife was given a seven-year suspended sentence and five years’ probation, The Connecticut Post article said.
