Another former Ventnor firefighter admits role in state health benefits fraud

CAMDEN — A former Ventnor firefighter on Friday joined a long list of local residents who pleaded guilty in a massive fraud scheme that cost the state more than $25 million in health benefits payouts to an out-of-state pharmaceutical company.

Edward Sutor Jr., 36, of Linwood, pleaded guilty in federal court Friday in Camden to defrauding New Jersey of more than $2 million in claims through the public employees health benefits system, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“He appeared today in court and entered a plea because he wanted to accept responsibility,” said Sutor’s attorney John Zarych, of Northfield.

Edward Sutor is the cousin of Ventnor firefighter Corey Sutor, of Egg Harbor Township, who also admitted in December to receiving about $150,000 for his role in the scheme. Corey Sutor’s current status with the department was unclear Friday.
