COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A Nebraska man has been accused of stealing prescription painkillers while working for a pharmacy in Council Bluffs.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/2lSKnOy ) that Justin Gardner, of Omaha, is charged with two counts of possession and one of theft. Online records said Monday that Gardner remained in Pottawattamie County custody. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

A police report says Gardner told a manager at the Walgreens store and then detectives that he stole the pills and sold them.

Gardner’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.
