Authorities: Pharmacist admitted stealing drugs

SPRING HILL -- A pharmacist ended up behind bars Tuesday after officials say he admitted stealing prescription drugs while on the job at two Spring Hill Walgreens stores. Michael S. Cummings, 58, of 11730 Lakeview Drive in Port Richey faces seven drug possession charges after he told sheriff's officials he was addicted to painkillers and emptied his pockets, which were full of pills, a sheriff's report said. Cummings works as a pharmacist at the Walgreens at 11180 Spring Hill Drive and 14320 Spring Hill Drive and would stuff the drugs into his clothing and mouth as he worked, he told officials. Sheriff's investigators were alerted to Cummings by an investigator with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and a Walgreens loss prevention supervisor, the report said.
