OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon City police say they’ve arrested a cleaning woman after she was caught stealing prescription medication from a home.

KATU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TNnhhq ) that the 32-year-old Vancouver woman was charged with theft and possession of a controlled substance.

Amanda Morgan works for a company called The Cleaning Authority.

Oregon City Police Sgt. Patrick Lynch says Morgan was suspected of stealing medication from a home she cleaned. The homeowners believed Morgan was stealing hydrocodone a few pills at a time. They contacted the police and they set up a sting. They planted cameras in the home and caught Morgan in the act of stealing the drugs.

Morgan was arrested and booked into the Clackamas County Jail. Late Friday evening, Morgan was no longer listed as an inmate.
