Former Wadley Nurse Accused Of Stealing Narcotics


TEXARKANA, Texas–A registered nurse who allegedly stole narcotics from Wadley Regional Medical Center last year is facing a theft charge in Bowie County.

A report was made to Texarkana, Texas, police by the hospital after it was alerted that Adam Akers37, allegedly had taken controlled substances from the facility in December, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case last week in Bowie County.

Investigators acquired a subpoena for records from the hospital’s Pyxis machine, which dispenses and tracks medications dispensed for patients. Records allegedly showed 17 discrepancies regarding narcotic withdrawals by Akers. The drugs listed in the affidavit include fentanyl, Midazolam and dilaudid.

Akers has been charged with theft of a controlled substance under $150,000 on dates beginning in May 2022 until mid-December 2022. Akers was employed by the hospital from May 20 to Dec. 11 of 2022, when he was terminated, according to the affidavit.

If convicted, Akers faces two to ten years in prison. He was arrested March 17 and released the same day on a $75,000 personal recognizance bond.
