A Paradise woman who worked at a capital city seniors home last year has been charged with stealing narcotics while on duty.
Deanne Bartlett had her case called Tuesday morning in provincial court.
The 45-year-old wasn't in court, but was represented by her lawyer, Jeremy de Jong.
Crown prosecutor Brenda Boyd and de Jong agreed to postpone the case until Dec. 4.
Bartlett, who was not an employee of Eastern Health, faces eight charges — three counts of possessing narcotics, including two for morphine and one for Dilaudid (hydromorphine), four counts of theft under $5,000 and a single count of altering narcotic control records at the facility.
The offences were said to have taken place between Oct. 1, 2012 and Oct. 31, 2012 at Chancellor Park personal care home on Portugal Cove Road.
