Elkin Nurse Accused in Theft of Fentanyl From Hospital After Husband Overdoses: SBI

Surry County, NC (WFMY) An Elkin nurse has been arrested for stealing vials of Fentanyl from the hospital she was working at, according the the State Bureau of Investigation.

Investigators arrested Hayley Lammon Brown, 28, Monday.  She was working at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, but has since been terminated.  The N.C. Board of Nursing also suspended her nursing license.

This started back in April when Elkin Police were called to her home for a possible overdose involving her husband.  While investigating, police found several vials of the stolen Fentanyl.  Sgt. Joseph Johnson handled several vials of the Fentanyl and had to be hospitalized because he touched the drug with his bare hands.  The SBI says Sgt. Johnson made a complete recovery.

Brown was charged with one felony count of Embezzlement of a Controlled Substance by Employee and one misdemeanor count of Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer.

She was released on $5,000 bond.
