Q2 reports that an evidence technician for the Billings Police Department has been fired after she admitted to stealing close to 1,000 pills collected as evidence in 138 cases.

Chief Rich St. John said, on Tuesday, that 38-year-old Rawlyn Strizich admitted to the theft days before a scheduled audit in January and was fired on February 6th. Strizich reportedly searched the database for cases involving opioids and would locate the evidence and remove the pills.
