CARTHAGE, N.C. (WNCN) — A Moore County Detention Center nurse was arrested Friday for stealing antibiotics and giving them to family members, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deanna Marie Thomas, 40, is a former nurse that worked for Southern Health Partners and was assigned to the Moore County Detention Center.
Deputies said they learned Thomas took antibiotics and other non-narcotic medications and gave them to a family member. Thomas’s nursing license did not allow her to dispense medication without a doctor’s order.
Thomas was arrested and charged with:
- Two counts of larceny by employee
- Two counts of practicing medicine without a license
- Two counts of practicing pharmacy without a license
- Two counts of felony conspiracy
Thomas received a $100,000 secured bond and has a court date on Sept. 15.
