HETTINGER, N.D. (KFYR) - Adams County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Bowman woman on theft and prescription drug distribution charges last Wednesday after they say she stole from a nursing home.

Deputies say Karen Woodbury stole narcotic pain medication from Western Horizons Care Center in Hettinger during her employment. They say she then illegally sold the medication to members of the community.

Woodbury is in custody at the Southwest Multi-County Correctional Center.

Adams County Sheriff Jordan Fisher says his department is taking a tough approach on crime.

“You have two choices. Number one, you can immediately leave Adams County; or number two, you take your chances in Adams County. If you choose the latter, I guarantee you we will find you, arrest you and make you famous on the internet,” said Fisher.
