* Carol Jane Tebben, 42, of Prinsburg, pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of fifth-degree controlled substance possession.
As part of a plea agreement, a felony theft charge for taking prescription medication will be dismissed and she will receive a stay of adjudication on her sentence.
The charges were filed after Willmar police were called April 21 to Bethesda Pleasantview Health Care to investigate a report of theft of prescription drug. Personnel there told the officer there was a problem with the prescription for liquid Lorazepam, a generic of Ativan, which is a Schedule IV controlled substance. A patient had been receiving the drug, was missing some, and the nursing staff suspected that a portion of the medication was removed and replaced with an unknown substance because there appeared to be too much in the medication bottle, which was filled to the neck.
Tebben met with an investigator and allegedly admitted to taking the drug, knowing it was an anti-anxiety drug, for her own anxiety issues. She admitted to taking 0.5 milligrams on five occasions and to putting the liquid in a medicine cup and taking the drug orally after her shift was over. She also said she attempted to replace the missing drug with water.
She will be sentenced Sept. 25.
