A Publix pharmacy technician has been fired and arrested after confessing to stealing Vicodin to pay for her gas money and other car expenses.

Kathy Rene Dullum, 55, said she had been stealing the tablets from her Publix store in Leesburg, Florida, for about a year. She allegedly sold the pills to children, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

Loss-prevention officers confronted Dullum at her store with video surveillance showing the technician stealing not only the tablets, but also cash.

She confessed to stealing 4 tablets a week, plus $1150 in cash from the registers so that she could make her car payments, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

Dullum told police she sold the tablets to "children in her neighborhood in order to pay for gas to drive to and from work.”

Dullum, who had been a pharmacy technician since 2011, was fired from Publix. She faces charges of grand theft, fraud, and dealing in stolen property.

She is being held in jail on a $9000 bond, according to The Orlando Sentinel.
