Kennewick pharmacy technician accused of stealing medication

The Associated Press

KENNEWICK — Police in Kennewick arrested a pharmacy technician accused of stealing at least 17,000 pills while working at a Walgreens store.

The Tri-City Herald reports  32-year-old Marianne Folk pleaded innocent to a charge of first-degree theft at a Thursday court appearance in Benton County.

According to court documents, the store’s security manager told police that inventory checks showed a large number of pain pills and muscle relaxers missing.

He said the store redirected a security camera to cover the back stock area and footage showed Folk grabbing a bottle and either walking out of view or pouring the bottle into her pocket.

A trial date has been scheduled for March 9.
