A NURSE, aged 46, has been arrested by the National Police on charges of allegedly stealing opioid, psychotropic and narcotic drugs from several health centres in the Valencia Region where she worked.
The arrested woman apparently stole medicines which, if administered inappropriately, could cause serious damage to people’s health. The woman worked in several health centres in the community and allegedly took medicines that were locked away, as reported yesterday by sources of the National Police in a statement.
The investigation began when the police were informed of the disappearance of three vials of opioid drugs (morphine and doline in particular). The health centre began to lock the drugs away but more disappeared during the same shift when the accused woman was working. The police arrested the woman and released her after taking her statement and warned her that she will have to appear before a judge for sentencing.
