** A Virginia medic from Roanoke has been indicted on felony drug tampering charges involving the replacement of fentanyl vials with water. The Roanoke Times (Jeff Sturgeon/June 24) said Jeffrey Leedy, 31, allegedly undertook the ruse between November 2018 and June 2019. According to the newspaper, he tampered with the meds late at night when no one was around. He then replaced the caps by gluing them back on the vials. Investigators found 53 instances where the bottles had been altered. Leedy, who was employed with the Roanoke County Fire and Rescue, LewisGale Medical Center and Centra Lynchburg General Hospital, has since left all three positions. He has also sought treatment for his drug issues.
