An Anderson County nurse was arrested last week after police say she stole medicine from a nursing home.

Lawrenceburg police say Polly A. Campbell, who was a registered nurse at Signature at Heritage Hall, took medication and medication count sheets from the facility.

Officers say Campbell stole from multiple patients at the center. They say she worked at Heritage Hall for five or six months.

Campbell is charged with multiple counts of Theft by Unlawful Taking Controlled Substances, multiple counts of Theft of Medical Records and Presciption Controlled Substance Not in Proper Container.

More charges are possible after the nursing home completes an audit of their medications.

Police do not believe anyone else was involved in the theft.

A preliminary hearing for Campbell is scheduled for December 7 in Anderson County District Court.
