George brothers, 30 others arrested in pain clinic chain Doctor charged with murder


Law enforcement on Tuesday arrested twin brothers they called kingpins of South Florida's biggest pill mill network, along with 30 of their top lieutenants in a criminal operation that used kidnapping and gunfire to profit.

Jeffrey and Christopher George collected $40 million in two years peddling 20 million pain pills from their string of four clinics in Broward andPalm Beach counties, federal prosecutors and police said. They made millions more by selling illegal steroids over the Internet and phony time-shares from a boiler room, officials said.
