PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida sheriff's office employee and crime scene technician is accused of stealing drugs from evidence.

The Pensacola News Journal  reported  that Christine Rollins was arrested Friday after authorities said an investigation revealed she had been stealing narcotics from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office evidence building.

The office also said that Sheriff David Morgan has ordered that the 41-year-old Rollins be fired from her job.

The sheriff's office did not provide any additional details.

She was charged with trafficking hydrocodone, trafficking oxycodone, petty theft, and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

Jail records show that Rollins remains held in the Escambia County jail. Records do not show whether Rollins has an attorney.
