A Madisonville woman is arrested after police say she stole thousands of dollars worth of pain medication.
The Madisonville Police Department says the Walgreen's at 1679 S. Main St. reported to them that an employee, 29-year-old Laura Jean Trautman, had admitted to stealing over 1,700 hydrocodone pills over the past year.
MPD says Trautman admitted to the theft after she was confronted with surveillance footage of her concealing the pills on her person.
Police say the pills have an estimated street value of over $10,000.
Trautman was taken to the Hopkins County Jail.
