KELLOGG, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho pharmacist must serve three years of probation and pay $75,594 restitution for stealing drugs from the pharmacy where he’d worked for decades.

Sixty-six-year-old Steven R. Milot of Kellogg also must perform 100 hours of community service, according to his sentence handed down Monday in U.S. District Court in Coeur d’Alene. After a long career at Osburn Drug in Kellogg, Milot had gained the trust of the community. But in 2012, prosecutors say, video surveillance recorded Milot misappropriating controlled substances.

That prompted the Idaho State Police to execute a search warrant at Milot’s home, where they discovered a stash of drugs including thousands of tablets of Oxycodone and OxyContin. They also learned how he had acquired his illicit stash: Milot ordered drugs via wire transmissions, to avoid detection.
