Rimersburg, PA – A Reynoldsville woman is facing charges for allegedly stealing a prescription from a home in Rimersburg.

Parole agents tipped off police officers that 46-year-old Julie King had reportedly using people’s medications without their knowledge.

Police arrested King at a Rimersburg home on Feb. 12, where she admitted to using the resident’s Suboxone, an opioid painkiller that is often used for opioid withdrawals and addictions.

She’s also accused of taking prescription anti-nausea medication from a young boy. The two drugs are often paired together because people will often become nauseated when coming down from suboxone.

King is facing misdemeanor charges of theft by unlawful taking, intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person who is not registered, and use or possession of drug paraphernalia. King is currently awaiting her preliminary hearing.
