Twin Cities Pharmacist Pleads Guilty to Altering Morphine
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News)- A Ramsey pharmacist has pleaded guilty to charges for watering down morphine and keeping some for herself.
The US Attorney’s Office in Minnesota announced Wednesday 42-year-old Jennifer Draheim pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of adulteration of a drug. Court records allege the Minneapolis woman removed a stock bottle of morphine sulfate from the scheduled drug cabinet, poured some of the pain killer into her own container for personal use, added water to refill the stock bottle and returned it back to the cabinet in October of 2019.
The US Attorney’s Office says the diluted bottle was part of the inventory the pharmacy uses to refill prescriptions. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later time.
