Saturday deputies from Independence County Sheriff’s office recovered 117 pills from inside a 29 year-old patient at White River Medical Center. The pill bottle was discovered inside the patient during a CT scan.

The bottle of pills was recovered by a nurse.

Inside of the bottle were three different types of pills: A tan capsule marked S487 20mg believed to be Vyvanse, a medication for ADHD; 66 blue oval pills marked GG258 believed to be Alprazolam 1mg, a medication for anxiety; and 51 yellow rectangle pills marked P039 believed to be Alprazolam 2mg, a medication for anxiety.

Deputies attempted to speak wit the patient but due to the patient’s medical state, were unable to gain a response. A witness statement was collected from a nurse.
