Former Innisfail pharmacist in court April 10

Charges have not been filed yet but a former Innisfail pharmacist will make her first court appearance in April on allegations she stole a massive quantity of painkillers from her employer.

Charges have not been filed yet but a former Innisfail pharmacist will make her first court appearance in April on allegations she stole a massive quantity of painkillers from her employer.

The former pharmacist for the Innisfail Shoppers Drug Mart, a 34-year-old Red Deer woman, will be in Red Deer provincial court on April 10 on a promise to appear.

Innisfail RCMP allege that the woman filled non-existent prescriptions, emptied portions of Dilaudid capsules and then returned them to the shelf with as much as 50 per cent of the drug missing and made false records. Police said about 14,000 Dilaudid pills were stolen from the store over a period of 18 months.

Dilaudid is a brand name for hydromorphone hydrochloride, which is in the same narcotics class as heroin, methadone and hydrocodone.

Although she has been issued a promise to appear, formal charges in relation to the incident have not been sworn yet and a name has not been released by police.
