An Oshawa pharmacy employee is facing several charges after more than $40,000 worth of prescription drugs went missing during a five-month period.
Officers from DRPS’ Drug Enforcement Unit made the arrest following an investigation at the Lovell Drugs on Grandview Street. According to police, the suspect was found with oxycontin and dilaudid in her possession with a street value of more than $13,000.
Durham police say that since August, more than $40,000 worth of drugs were stolen from the pharmacy. On the street, those drugs had a value of approximately $1.1 million.
A 35-year-old female of Capreol Court in Oshawa has been charged with 10 counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and two counts of theft over $5,000 in connection with this incident.
