The Tennessee Board of Pharmacy has revoked the pharmacy technician license of Evan McKenzie, after he admitted to stealing Oxycodone from prescriptions. The board has made multiple attempts to locate McKenzie over many months, to no success, so his case was finally brought before the board in his absence.
The event that brought his license in question occurred in 2016, when a pharmacist at the Goodlettsville Kroger at 123 Northcreek Blvd was performing the final verification. He noticed that less tablets of Oxycodone was present in the bottle than were prescribed to the patient, the prescription was filled by Evan McKenzie. During an interview, McKenzie admitted, in writing, to stealing Oxycodone from prepared prescriptions on several occasions over the course of several weeks.
Evan McKenzie was granted a pharmacy technician license (#56731) on July 5th, 2016, and it expired on July 31st, 2018. The only pharmacy McKenzie worked at during that period was the Kroger pharmacy #541 in Goodlettsville, Tennessee.
McKenzie was also arrested for theft from the Kroger Pharmacy during this time, for fraudulently taking $25 prescription coupons and loading them onto his personal Kroger Card. He did this $40 times, profiting $1,000. He received a deferred judgment, with no conviction on this felony charge.
