CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Mason City woman accused of stealing prescription drugs and violating patient confidentiality laws has pleaded guilty.

Mason City station KIMT reports that Samantha Rogers also pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids to making false statements related to health care matters. Prosecutors dropped other charges in return for her pleas.

A criminal complaint says Rogers is a registered nurse and occupational therapist and that the incidents occurred in Cerro Gordo County.

Authorities say Rogers stole medications from co-workers. Authorities also say Rogers accessed medical records to find patient addresses and then would show up at their homes, posing as a public health worker who was recovering unused medications.
