A Hempfield woman is accused by police of stealing pain medication from a patient while she was working at a Penn Township care facility.

Sheila Wright, 41, allegedly took 30 of the Vicodin pills she was to deliver to a patient in another building at William Penn Personal Care Center on Oct. 9, according to an affidavit of probable cause. Wright told police she placed the 30 pills in her bag “because she needed them for herself.”

Wright delivered the remaining pills to the patient and allegedly altered a tracking sheet to match the number of pills she actually provided to the patient.

Wright is charged with theft and receiving stolen property before Harrison City District Judge Helen Kistler. A summons has been issued and a Dec. 10 preliminary hearing is scheduled.
