Two Wal Mart Pharmacy Employees Arrested For Theft of Drugs

On Thursday June 3rd, the Jackson County Drug Task Force conducted an investigation into the Trafficking of Hydrocodone pills at the Wal-Mart Pharmacy in Marianna, Florida.  During the investigation, officers found that over ten thousand generic Hydrocodone pills have been stolen from the Wal-Mart Pharmacy within the last several months by Tresha Davis, an employee in the department.  Several hundred Lortab tablets containing Hydrocodone had also been taken.  Investigators found that Tresha had been stealing approx. two hundred Hydrocodone 10/500 pills from the Wal-Mart Pharmacy and had been doing so at least once a week since the beginning of March.
During the investigation, Investigators found that a co-worker, Priscilla Noble, had assisted Tresha in the theft and that the pills were taken to Priscilla’s residence on Sunset Drive in Marianna to sell.  Investigators found that Tresha was paid two hundred dollars as payment for the pills each time she removed them from the Pharmacy.  Investigators also found that Priscilla was being paid one hundred dollars for her part of the theft each time it occurred.  It was discovered that the pills were sold to a third party at Priscilla’s residence.
Both Tresha Davis and Priscilla Noble were arrested and charged with Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, Hydrocodone, and Grand Theft.  Both Davis and Noble were taken to the Jackson County Jail.  This case is still under investigation and additional arrests are expected.
The Jackson County Drug Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional task force that is a combined effort of the Graceville Police Department, Cottondale Police Department, Marianna Police Department, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
