Later, the complainant noticed about 30 of her prescription pain pills were missing. “(She) said the pills were in the bathroom that (the acquaintance) had been using. (Complainant) then told (acquaintance) she was calling police about the matter.”
The officer then spoke to the acquaintance, who denied taking the pills and told her accuser “if she was going to take pills, she would take three or four not 30,” then left.
Both women agreed to stay away from each other.
