Ex-nurse busted for meth sales

WARSAW — A former nurse who lost her license for stealing painkillers and who earlier this month was indicted for selling methamphetamine now faces new drug charges.

Sally A. Miller, 56, of Chaffee was charged last week with criminal possession of a controlled substance and promoting prison contraband, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Miller had been committed to Wyoming County Jail after her arrest on meth charges and was found to be in possession of more drugs while in jail.

It was the latest in a series of arrests for Miller.

Earlier this month a Wyoming County grand jury indicted her on charges of fifth-degree criminal sale and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Assistant District Attorney Gregory Kilburn said the indictment stems from a Wyoming County Drug Task Force investigation that revealed Miller was selling meth in Arcade.

Miller was a registered nurse who lost her license to practice after she was convicted in Erie County Court in 2014 of stealing hydrocodone pills while working as a nurse.

A year later she was arrested in Warsaw for lying to staff at Wyoming County Skilled Nursing Facility. She later admitted she was attempted to work as a nurse and was sentenced to probation.

She also was arrested in Allegany County in 2015 for practicing without a license, petit larceny and criminal possession of a weapon.
