Aurora Health Care employee charged after allegedly taking medication he ordered for the facility

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Brookfield man has now been charged after taking medication that he ordered for Aurora Health Care.

Aurora Health Care called the Muskego Police Department to report that an employee had been ordering medication for the facility which was not requested by any physicians. When the medication was allegedly delivered and paid for by Aurora, the employee would take them.

The employee has been identified as 35-year-old Jeremiah Hendricks.

According to the criminal complaint, Hendricks allegedly admitted in writing that he had ordered medication for personal use through Aurora and had been doing so for approximately a year.

 A hospital employee noticed that Naloxone was being ordered in abundance when the clinic primarily used boosters and vaccines.

Police spoke with Hendricks who told them that he had been ordering medications because he did not want to continue seeing his psychiatrist. 

Hendricks allegedly took the medication from June 27, 2017 until April 26, 2018 which resulted in a total loss of $25,150.
