A pair of Knox residents were arrested Thursday after they allegedly stole prescription medication.
A Knox resident called the Knox City Police Department to say that she dropped a bottle of prescription medication outside her home and Timothy and Priscilla Bodine picked it up and stole it. The Bodines were over at the residence and to pick up coats and when the victim handed the coats to them, she told police it was then that she probably dropped the medication that she had in her hand. She later noticed it missing and believed that’s when she lost the bottle.
The victim told her daughter about the incident and decided to call a friend of hers to arrange a deal. The daughter called her friend who in turn called the Bodines to purchase the medication. When the Bodines arrived at the scene, they were confronted. Priscilla Bodine reportedly tried to flee in a vehicle and nearly hit the victim’s daughter and did hit the leg of another person at the scene who pushed her out of the way.
When police talked to Timothy Bodine about the incident, he allegedly told police that the victim had given them the medication. Police searched the vehicle and found several other prescription bottles and pills.
Timothy Bodine, 44, was arrested on preliminary charges of Theft, and Possession of a Controlled Substance within 1,000 feet of a Public Park. Priscilla Bodine, 40, was arrested on preliminary charges of Theft, Possession of a Controlled Substance within 1,000 feet of a Public Park and Possession of a Legend Drug.
