CONCORD, N.H. — A nursing home worker in New Hampshire has been charged with taking away pain medication from two residents and keeping them for her own use.

Attorney General Michael Delaney says a Strafford County grand jury has indicted Alesha Neault of Berwick, Maine, on two felony counts of unlawfully possessing a controlled drug and two misdemeanor counts of abusing a facility resident.

The indictments charge that Neault, while working at the Riverview Rest Home in Dover, removed Fentanyl narcotic patches from two residents and kept them. Fentanyl is a powerful narcotic used to treat severe and persistent pain.
