WAHOO, Neb. — An eastern Nebraska woman has been accused of stealing a prescription painkiller from a nursing home.
Nicole Chase, 27, faces up to 5½ years behind bars if convicted. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 20.
Ashland police said the Ashland Care Center reported last month that the narcotics were missing and likely had been stolen. The center's top administrator, Ben Eddy, declined to comment. — AP
