Pharmacy Tech Facing Drug Charges

Posted on in Drug Crimes

The Chicago Tribune recently reported a story about a pharmacy technician, who is facing thirteen drug charges after the police found marijuana and over 2,300 prescription pills in her car. The medication uncovered in her car included Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, and Adderall. The pharmacy technician admitted to selling the medication on the streets for profit.

On August 2, the Lake County Sheriff's department responded to a call about a reckless driver and a black Toyota matching the description was found parked at a McDonald's parking lot in Volo, says a news release from the Lake County Sheriff's office. The officers approaching the vehicle smelled burning marijuana and noticed a clear plastic bag containing marijuana inside the car, says the release.

The driver of the black Toyota, Holland R. Hernandez, 26, was taken into custody, and the police searched her car. The search left the police with more than 2,300 prescription pills and over $4,700 in cash, in addition to the marijuana. The police also found a shotgun with ammunition shells attached to the weapon in the trunk of Hernandez's car.

Hernandez told the interrogators that she is a pharmacy technician, and she sells the pills on the streets for $2 a pill. She will face charges for six counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of cannabis. She is also being charged for operating an uninsured vehicle and driving with a suspended license. Her bail is set at $50,000.
