Area nurses charged with drug theft
July 13, 2018, Cedar Falls, IA
Two Northeast Iowa nurses have been arrested for allegedly taking painkillers from patients.
In separate cases, federal grand jury returned indictments charging Lacey Staveley and James Allen Moorehead with prescription drug fraud and making false health-care statements.
Staveley, of Evansdale, had been working Cedar Falls Health Care Center in November 2016 when she allegedly took hydrocodone-acetaminophen tablets intended for two nursing home patients and then falsely indicated on medical records that the medicine had been administered.
