3 Accused of Stealing Meds from Military Hospitals
GREENBELT, Md. — Federal prosecutors say three men have been indicted for allegedly stealing prescription drugs from two military hospitals.
Sixty-year-old Issa Koroma of Springdale, and 42-year-old Rodger Gurdon and 39-year-old Daniel Wilkerson, both of Waldorf, were named in the five-count indictment, which was returned Monday.
Koroma and Gurdon worked as pharmacy techs at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital in Virginia, respectively. The indictment alleges that Koroma stole Norditropin, a human growth hormone, and Botox from Walter Reed, which he sold to Gurdon.
Prosecutors say Gurdon also stole Norditropin from Fort Belvoir, and sold the stolen drugs to Wilkerson.
Officials say $1.3 million worth of drugs were stolen.
