Sarah T. Blodgett, Assistant Attorney General
Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy ("Board") has suspended the pharmacy technician registration of Aaron M. Dransfield of Pembroke, New Hampshire, effective September 28, 2012. Mr. Dransfield had been working as a pharmacy technician at a Rite-Aid located in Concord, New Hampshire.
The Board's action is in response to Mr. Dransfield's admission that he had stolen 8-12 alprozalam tablets for his personal use. Rite-Aid has reported the loss of hundreds of lorazepam, diazepam, and alprozalam pills.
On September 28, 2012, the Board issued an Order of Emergency Suspension and Notice of Hearing. The order suspended Mr. Dransfield's registration immediately. A Board hearing is scheduled for October 4, 2012 at 8:00 a.m., for the purpose of determining whether Mr. Dransfield's registration will remain suspended during the course of the on-going investigation.
Copies of the Order of Emergency Suspension and Notice of Hearing are available upon request by contacting the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy, 57 Regional Drive, Concord, New Hampshire, (603) 271-2350.
