An employee of an Englewood neighborhood Walgreens was charged with stealing more than $10,000 in prescription medications and selling them on the street, police said.
Jaleca Wilkins, 21, of the 6000 block of South Elizabeth Street, was charged with one count of felony theft, police said.
Wilkins was seen by coworkers on "numerous separate occasions" taking several prescription medications, including hydrocodone, from the store, 650 W. 63rd St., police said.
Walgreens conducted an investigation and contacted Chicago police. After she was arrested at her workplace Monday, Wilkins told police she'd sell the medications — hydrocodone, alprazolam and promethazine-codeine — from $125 to $600 per bottle.
Wilkins listed her occupation on an arrest report as a technician. Police listed the total value of the medications taken at $10,372.86.
