When you see 50 people standing outside a clinic waiting for their prescriptions, you can pretty much guess there’s something up.
That’s what detectives from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes HALT unit found Tuesday morning when they visited a clinic in Sylmar.
“These are what we call pill mills,” explained Sgt. Steve Opferman, spokesman for the team. “They appear to be medical clinics when in fact, they are where people go to get controlled substances.”
