Victimless Crime File: Don’t Let Christy Lane Gibson Around Your Pain Pills

Got some pills?

Simpsonville’s Christy Lane Smith either likes to pop pills or makes some money on the side. The nurse was caught stealing pain pills fromĀ  the Mary Black Memorial Hospital in Spartanburg. From GoUpstate:

Christy Lane Gibson, 34, of 8 Rustling Creek Court, was charged by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s criminal investigation division with two counts of theft of a controlled substance.

According to arrest warrants, Gibson, a registered nurse at the Spartanburg hospital, took hydromorphone and morphine from the hospital. Both are painkillers used to treat moderate to severe pain.

The incidents occurred between Feb. 28 and March 25, the warrants state.

The arrest was “based on DHEC investigation, Mary Black Memorial Hospital narcotic records, witnesses’ statements and the defendant’s sworn, written, voluntary statement,” according to the warrants.

She is out on a $10,000 bond. The hospital she worked at released a statement that reveled she’d only been working there since January. Think she got the job just to get access to the pills?

Hey, wait a minute. These pills are legal yet drug users still commit crimes involving obtaining them. That doesn’t make sense, right Libertarians?
