West Kentucky Pharmacist Charged For Stealing Medications

Oct 18, 2018

A pharmacist in west Kentucky was charged by a federal grand jury indictment for stealing medications. United States Attorney Russell Coleman announced today that 34-year-old Kyle Humphrey of Benton is charged with stealing pre-retail prescription medications, mislabeling prescription medication in order to defraud or mislead and wrongful use of health information.

The indictment says Humphrey concealed nearly two dozen medications and altered a label while working in a Calloway County pharmacy. It also says he obtained identifiable health information and intended to use it for personal gain.

Humphrey faces a separate felony charge for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. He could face up to 43 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
