A Johnson County nurse has pleaded guilty to stealing opioid drugs while working at a residential care facility in Gardner, Kansas.

The Kansas City Star reports Jeremy Keith Bailey, 41, pleaded guilty Thursday to possession of a controlled substance, theft and Medicaid fraud.

The Kansas Attorney General's Office said that Bailey surrendered his nursing license as part of the plea agreement.

Bailey was charged earlier this year with stealing the Percocet while working as a registered nurse at the Meadowbrook Rehabilitation Hospital.

He will be sentenced Dec. 18.
