A city of Boston paramedic has been arraigned on 73 counts of stealing pain killers and sedatives from city ambulances and out of storage. Brian Benoit was released today following his arraignment.
One of the conditions of his release was that he not work as a paramedic or EMT while the charges are pending.
Benoit is accused of taking morphine and fentanyl intended for patients and replacing it with saline and vitamin B. The diluted drugs were administered to at least 10 patients.
