Police: Pharmacist pocketed pills

For at least six months, hundreds of prescription painkiller pills were stolen from the pharmacy where a Greenwood man worked, police said.

Anthony Gamm, 49, who has been charged with multiple counts of theft and possession of a controlled substance, told police he suffered from a nerve disorder and needed relief.

An investigation found that since at least January 780 Oxycontin pills were taken from a CVS Pharmacy in Greenfield, where Gamm worked as a pharmacist. Gamm told police he made up patient names, filled prescriptions, then deleted the prescriptions and pocketed the pills, according to a police report.
