BEND, OR -- An employee at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend is accused of stealing from the hospital’s pharmacy. St. Charles officials contacted police when they suspected 32-year-old Shane Welsh had been taking a synthetic opiate from the pharmacy since the beginning of the year. They estimate Welsh stole at least 200 vials of Remifentanyl, worth about $10,000. 

 

Investigators say Welsh used the pharmacies computer to conceal the thefts, and was not only stealing controlled substances for personal use, but was also selling a number of drugs. During a search of his home, police found Ketamine, Oxycodone/Acetaminophen and Methadone, along with two handguns, two semi-automatic rifles and a shotgun.
 
Welsh faces multiple charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance, possession of several drugs and aggravated theft.
