Burlington, NC | In late August the Burlington Police Department was contacted by Authoracare, Hospice of Alamance, after they discovered missing vials of medication from their facility. During an internal audit, Authoracare revealed that a nurse, 39-year-old female Lindsay Story of Greensboro, was stealing the vials.
Burlington Police Department detectives began an investigation and believe that Ms. Story had stolen over 600 vials of hydromorphone over a five-month period, from April-August 2023. Hydromorphone is more commonly known as “Dilaudid”. Ms. Story used her access to the employer’s computers to falsify the medication distribution process, allowing her to take more vials out than what was needed for patients. At this point in the investigation, there is no evidence of tampering with any patient's medication.
Lindsay Story is currently wanted for embezzlement of a controlled substance. It is possible that there may be additional charges as the investigation continues.
