St. Petersburg, FL (June 29, 2019) - A technician at a local CVS pharmacy was arrested for grand theft this week after being accused of stealing from the store. The St. Petersburg Police Department arrested 24-year-old Natasha Nicole Curry this week in relation to the incidents.
Police say that Curry, who worked at the location on 2100 66th Street North, had stolen drugs and numerous other items over a three and a half year time period. Authorities were alerted to the possibility of theft when another employee discovered several missing items. When officers arrived to investigate they confirmed that prescription drugs, as well as hygiene and food items, were taken from the store.
When she was questioned, Curry allegedly told police that she was selling the stolen items from her vehicle. She was arrested and taken to jail before being released on a $2,500.00 bond. Additional charges may be possible according to officers.
