Intensive Care RN arrested for  selling drugs.

Sheriff Ken Mascara announced that an undercover investigation has led to the arrest of an RN  for selling prescription drugs without a license. of Amanda E. Ingersoll, 36, of Port St. Lucie was arrested today.

“Ingersoll is an intensive care unit nurse at J.F.K. Medical Center in West Palm Beach,” said Sheriff Ken J. Mascara. “We believe that she stole the drugs from her employer and then sold them in various forms and quantities.”

Several undercover transactions were conducted in which Morphine pills were purchased from Ingersoll.

“Drug dealers aren’t just in back allies or on the street corner,” Mascara said. “They can be individuals just like this one who uses their position of authority to take advantage of others suffering from the grips of addiction.

Ingersoll was charged with two counts of selling or distributing an opium or opium derivative, two counts of dispensing drugs without a prescription, one count of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail on a $53,250 bond.
