Bradley C. Allen, a 22-year veteran of the Camas Fire District is accused by the FDA of stealing the painkiller fentanyl in ambulance medical kits and substituting the drug with water.
According to charges, Allen is accused of forging fire district orders for the drug and having it shipped to his home.
The theft of the medication came to light after paramedics noticed broken seals and missing supplies of the drug. According to a report written by Michael Rollins of KGW, detectives investigating the missing medication looked at Allen because he was in charge of ordering supplies and he oversaw the supply storage room.
The Camas interim police captain, Rob Skeens, claims that there is no evidence that ambulance patients were given water instead of fentanyl.
