PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona pharmacy technician is facing numerous charges for his role in the theft of hundreds of boxes of diabetic test strips.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office said Friday a grand jury has indicated 30-year-old Robert Brian Kemple. He’s facing 33 charges related to the theft of more than $100,000 of medical supplies from a CVS Pharmacy over several months.

A nine-year employee, Kemple reportedly told Goodyear police after being arrested last year that he sold the test strips online at discounted prices.

It was unclear from court records if Kemple had an attorney.

The attorney general’s office said Kemple’s case is among several from Arizona that are part of a nationwide effort in June to highlight fraud and opioid-related offenses by doctors and others in the medical field.
