SAN ANTONIO – A former pharmacy technician at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Kerrville has been arrested after federal authorities say he stole hydrocodone and oxycodone prescriptions.
According to federal authorities, Brown stole the drugs from the mailroom of the VAMC, where he worked.
He also stole prescriptions from residential mailboxes at about 40 locations around Kerrville, Ingram and Center Point, authorities said.
Victims began reporting missing prescriptions from the VAMC in March.
Brown is in custody and has a detention hearing scheduled for Monday morning in San Antonio. The hearing will be before U.S Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad.
