SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A former pharmacy technician at Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, Mo., was indicted by a federal grand jury today for stealing fentanyl and morphine from the pharmacy and replacing the drugs with saline solution.

 

Marc F. Musil, 36, of Springfield, Mo., was charged with two counts of tampering with a consumer product in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield.

 

Today’s indictment alleges that Musil removed fentanyl from syringes on July 12, 2017, and replaced the fentanyl with saline solution. The indictment also alleges that Musil removed morphine from syringes and replaced the morphine with saline solution.

 

The charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Carney. It was investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration – Office of Criminal Investigations.
