LARGO, Fla. - A property clerk at the Pinellas County Jail faces multiple charges after sheriff's officials say he took prescription drugs from at least five inmates.
Officials say they began investigating last week after an inmate bonded out of jail and discovered some of his prescription pills were missing from his bag. Video surveillance showed Lansky taking a bag from the property area, disappearing from camera view, and then returning the bag to its storage location.
During an interview with Lansky, detectives say he admitted to taking about 176 pills from the stored property of five inmates.
