SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Spokane police say a pharmacy technician at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center stole 100,000 hydrocodone pain pills. The Spokesman-Review reports the man was arrested Wednesday after a surveillance camera showed him stuffing bottles of pills and codeine cough syrup into his backpack. More pills and empty bottles were found at his apartment and storage unit. The state Health Department is conducting an investigation that could take away his pharmacy credentials.
