Former Concord, NC pharmacy employee Jeanna Wilson, 35, plead guilty to eight felony drug charges stemming from a undercover investigation.
In September 2019 Jeanna was sentenced to between 70 and 93 months in prison following her plea to the following charges:
- Two counts of embezzlement of a controlled substance by an employee
- Two counts of trafficking in opium or heroin
- Two counts of maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place to sell controlled substances
- Two counts of possession with intent to sell/deliver a schedule II substance.
In August 2018, officers were tipped off that an employee of a local pharmacy was selling unopened bottles of oxycodone that were embezzled during work hours.
Undercover officers purchased oxycodone from Jeanna in the parking lot of the pharmacy where she worked and at her home.
After a pharmacy audit was performed authorities say they found at least 9,200 dosage units of 15 mg and 30 mg oxycodone tablets missing from the pharmacy over a 15-month period but due to incomplete pharmacy records, they were unable to determine the total amount of oxycodone missing while the thefts took place.
Jeanna was arrested following the August 2018 investigation.
