A man lawmen say used to work for two local fire-rescue departments is charged with embezzling pain killers from work.
The SBI says Michael West was an EMT for Greenville and Winterville's fire-rescue squads. West has been charged with four counts of embezzlement of a controlled substance. The SBI says West confessed to taking the painkillers, morphine and fentanyl, and the sedative midazolam from the stock in both Greenville and Winterville. Wast is due in court in December.
