Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies have arrested a 22-year-old woman from Forsyth County for the alleged theft of more than 170 pain pills from the South Forsyth Animal Hospital on Old Alpharetta road.

According to an incident report from the sheriff’s office, Danielle Kalynn Crescenzo was arrested on Feb. 28, after a large number of Tramadol pain pills were found to be missing from a cabinet of medications at South Forsyth Animal Hospital.

The report stated that suspicions begun when Crescenzo, an employee at the hospital, allegedly attempted to pay for 177 of the missing Tramadol pills using the name of a doctor who had, “not been at [South Forsyth Animal Hospital] in a year.”

The report stated that Crescenzo later admitted to taking an unknown amount of the missing pills. Crescenzo allegedly stated that “she had taken two today, for her sore back” and that she had, “filled a 7-gram pill bottle full of Tramadol,” three weeks previously while using the doctors keys to “look at a different controlled substance.”

Crescenzo was arrested and charged with felony distribution of controlled substances.

She has since been released from the Forsyth County Jail on a bond of $11,130.

Crescenzo could not be reached for comment as of press time.
