More than 26,000 prescription pain pills were diverted from a Butler County pharmacy onto the black market in and around Bowling Green. That’s what Bowling Green-Warren County Drug Task Force officers found as the result of an investigation that started with one undercover drug purchase in May. Hundreds of man-hours later, task force officers traced the source to a Butler County pharmacy where an employee, without the knowledge of her employer, stole the pills and provided them to another person for resale, police said.
