Police: Two face charges tied to prescription drugs

Staff report

Paducah police arrested two people Wednesday on charges related to prescription drugs.

Andrew Sullivan, 27, of Boaz was charged with selling pain medication from a pharmacy where he worked, police spokeswoman Robin Newberry said in a news release.

A McCracken County grand jury indicted Sullivan on 24 counts of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, Newberry said.

John Tolliver, the police department's prescription drug investigator, said he had received a call from the pharmacy regarding an internal theft. Tolliver said a large amount of hydrocodone tablets was missing.

Sullivan admitted during an interview to taking about 8,000 pain pills from the pharmacy over two years, Tolliver said. Sullivan allegedly sold them for $4 each.

Sullivan was arrested Wednesday morning and jailed under a $12,000 bond.

A Paducah woman was arrested Wednesday in an unrelated case. Jenna Carlson, 44, of Springdale Circle was charged with  altering six prescriptions for the Schedule II stimulant Adderall.

Tolliver was called to a pharmacy after employees became suspicious of a prescription, Newberry said.

Tolliver said the date appeared to have been altered. He found six other prescriptions for the same medication, written by the same physician, to Carlson. The physician told Tolliver the dates on the prescriptions had been altered to allow them to be refilled earlier than authorized.

A grand jury indicted Carlson on six counts of altering a prescription for a controlled substance. She was jailed and later released on a $6,000 bond.
