LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Federal authorities are investigating possible thefts at Lynchburg General Hospital’s pharmacy.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents served a warrant at the pharmacy on Wednesday.

Special agent in charge Gregory Cherundolo tells The News & Advance (https://bit.ly/1wOF8M7 ) that the warrant is related to an investigation of possible prescription drug thefts. He says thousands of pages of records for the last two years were copied.
