Narcotic detectives with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received a tip this week into an alleged prescription medication theft by a nurse working in a Troy nursing home. Detectives interviewed 46-year-old Angela Gebert, of Troy, who admitted stealing Vicodin pills from patients two years prior.
Gebert gave detectives permission to search her vehicle where they found a micro baggie containing a small amount of a crystal substance. When confronted, Gebert said the baggie did not belong to her but a subsequent search of her coat revealed two micro baggies of methamphetamine and a cut straw.
Gebert later admitted to being a meth addict. Gebert is charged with Possession of a Control Substance and posted a $1,500.00 cash or surety bond. Other conditions of bond may apply.
