Paul Davis of Felton was arrested Nov. 27

Dover police have arrested a hospital employee for allegedly stealing drugs from the pharmacy in which he was working.

Department spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman identified the man as 48-year-old Paul Davis of Felton.

Police started their investigation after hospital officials told them about the suspected thefts, and developed Davis as a suspect due to his pharmacy work over the past year.

Davis was arrested at his home without incident Nov. 27, Hoffman said.

Davis is charged with four counts of acquiring or obtaining possession of prescription pills by theft as well as a single count of possession with intent to deliver Tier 4 prescription pills.

He later was released from custody on a $72,000 unsecured bond.
