Former Twin Falls police detective has agreed to plead guilty to charges related to obtaining prescription drugs by fraud.
45–year old Curtis Gambrel was scheduled to go on trial next week in Twin Falls.
Instead the former head of the local dare anti–drug campaign will appear on Monday before a Jerome County 5th District Judge to enter a change of plea to guilty – according to court services officials.
At this time its uncertain if any of the 5 charges filed against Gambrel will be dropped – or if any sort of agreement has been made with prosecutors.
Gambrel is accused of obtaining numerous fraudulent prescriptions for the drugs hydrocodone and oxycodone from January 2005 to April 2007 – when he announced his retirement from the Twin Falls Police after a 22–year career.
