Bourne housekeeper accused of stealing drugs from home

Posted: Updated:

BOURNE (AP) - A housekeeper at a Massachusetts veterans' home has been charged with stealing prescription medication from the facility, and replacing some of the stolen drugs with over-the-counter pills to hide the thefts.

Federal prosecutors announced Tuesday that 49-year-old Pamela Silverberg of Bourne was indicted on charges including obtaining prescription drugs by subterfuge.

Authorities say Silverberg stole the medication between April 2011 and last June while working as a housekeeper, cook and caretaker at Kendrick House, a private residential care home in Wareham that caters primarily to military veterans.

Among the drugs stolen from a supply closet was the anti-anxiety medication, clonazepam, which prosecutors allege she replaced with over-the-counter allergy medication with a similar appearance.

Silverberg could not be reached for comment.
