A father and son in Philadelphia have now been sentenced in a major insurance fraud case regarding their auto body shop. Ronald Galati Sr. and his son Ronald Galti Jr. own and operate American Collision Auto Body in Philadelphia. The two admitted to taking part in a ring of schemes to unnecessarily repair Philadelphia City vehicles. Ronald Galati Sr was sentenced to 14 1/2 to 29 years in jail. His son Ronald Galati Jr. was sentenced to 9 to 23 months house arrest as well as 10 years probation. The two also face a hefty $2.3 million fine in restitutions to the city and insurance companies.

Philadelphia Police now report that almost three dozen suspected drug related deaths have happened in Philadelphia since December 1st. Medical examiners of the deceased have said that drug related deaths have gone up 30% and warn it could only get worse. Police are now investigating after a lethal batch of heroin has been circulating through the city, but police also say that might not be the only reason to blame. Police have stated they are doing their best to keep the drug off of the streets.

A Montgomery County woman has now been arrested after she allegedly sold drugs to a man who later died of a drug overdose. 27-year-old Gwendolyn Marie Prebish has been charged with homicide of drug delivery resulting in death, as well as involuntary manslaughter. The drugs apparently killed 32-year-old Michael Pastorino back on November 6th. Police say that Pastorino had texted Prebish the night before asking to bring him heroin. Police say that Prebish did not deliver heroin, instead it was fentanyl, a drug that is 40-50 times more deadly than street-level heroin. Prebish could now face up to 40 years in prison
