Pharmacy Tech Stole Percocet and Xanax; So Store Wouldn’t Be Robbed

A Belle Glade (Florida) Walgreens’ pharmacy technician had a novel explanation for her theft of hundreds of Xanax and Percocet tablets, police say. She wanted to keep a cousin from robbing the store.

That’s according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office via Taliseya McGee’s arrest form. Though the form said the 23-year-old eventually admitted the person wasn’t a true cousin, the lack of a family tree didn’t prevent her from getting the switch, administratively and legally.

The Florida Department of Health suspended McGee’s license last month. She was arrested. After she posted $24,000 bond, prosecutors decided to take no action on the charges of possession of oxycodone, possession of Xanax, grand theft and one count of trafficking in 25 grams to 100 grams of Oxycodone…  Miami Herald
