Troy woman admits to pain medicine theft from relative in hospice care

A Troy woman accused of stealing prescription drugs belonging to a relative who was under hospice care pleaded guilty Monday to felony theft of drugs in Miami County Common Pleas Court.

Melissa Clark, 53, was charged with the Nov. 11 possession of the stolen medications, including morphine pills. She was on probation at the time of the offense after pleading to another charge involving theft of liquid morphine from the same relative earlier this year, according to court documents.

A pre-sentence investigation was ordered for Clark, who will be sentenced Feb. 21.
