The pharmacy technician’s license held by Hudson resident Jessica Duda, 34, has been suspended effective June 20, 2013, amid allegations that she stole and resold narcotics from the CVS pharmacy at 177 Mammoth Road in Londonderry where she was employed, according to an announcement from New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster.
Foster announced that the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy issued an emergency suspension of the pharmacy technician privileges of Duda, meaning she cannot work as a pharmacy technician in New Hampshire during the period of her suspension.
Duda had been fired from CVS a week before her license was suspended and her arrest on June 12 on felony drug possession, possession with intent to distribute, misdemeanor theft and possession of drugs in a motor vehicle charges.
It is alleged in the emergency order that Duda “stole multiple tablets of a controlled substance from her pharmacy employer on about 10 occasions beginning in late April 2013.” The order said that Duda admitted to stealing a total amount of between 100 and 150 Hydrocodone 10/500 tablets and admitted stealing the tablets to sell to friends for money.
Duda has been ordered to appear July 3 before the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy for a hearing for “possible sanctions.” The board has 60 days to complete its proceedings.
