FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - San Juan County prosecutors say more than a dozen drug cases have been affected by thefts allegedly committed by a Farmington police evidence technician and they expect the number to rise.

The Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1wA2Que ) that the San Juan County District Attorney’s Office has identified 13 active cases impacted by Ashley Goodvoyce’s theft of pills and cash from a police storage facility.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Dustin O’Brien says eight other cases are also being reviewed.

Farmington Police Chief Steve Hebbe says detectives have spent the last several days looking at evidence packages for signs of tampering.

Authorities charged Goodvoyce on Oct. 17 with 39 felonies.

They say the theft was discovered after a detective found evidence was missing.

Goodvoyce is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
