A nuclear pharman has been arrested for allegedly stealing $5,000 worth of supplies and then running off with them from a New York pharmacy.

Kelley James, 23, was arrested at his home in Manhattan on Tuesday.

James is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and worked as a nuclear chemist at a North Carolina facility until he was fired in August after a worker discovered an unused, unused supply.

James allegedly took $5.7 million worth of medical supplies from a pharmacy in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Office of the Attorney General’s office says James had been an employee at the facility for at least two years and had been a full-time pharmacist since October 2016.

The company that runs the facility, Cephalon Pharmaceuticals, says James was an employee from the beginning of 2016 and had worked for them for the past two years.

James’ attorney, David Cohen, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday evening.
