** A sentencing hearing has been set for August 9th for a Tennessee EMS supervisor who pleaded guilty to stealing drugs from his ambulance service. The Crossville Chronicle (Michael Moser/June 7) said Cumberland County EMS’ Randy Lee Davidson, 47, has admitted official misconduct, forgery, and theft of less than $1,000 x 2 in connection with the allegations. According to the newspaper, Davidson was arrested after a sealed grand jury indictment. Investigators found he stole 36 fentanyl vials and 43 morphine vials between January 2015 and August 2016. He then apparently falsified documentation to make it appear as if the drugs were properly used. Davidson could face up to six years in prison, as well as several thousand dollars in fines.
