Former Target pharmacist charged with thefts of Testosterone and other drugs.
A former employee at a Target in Fairfield has been charged with stealing more than $12,000 worth of prescription drugs from the store, authorities said.

Nicholas Dalton, 26, of Clifton, allegedly swiped 8,500 tablets of hyrdocone and an undisclosed amount of testosterone and Xanax over the past nine months while working as a pharamacy technician at the Target store, Fairifield Deputy Chief Anthony Manna said today.

Dalton was arrested on May 1 when security guards at the store stopped him from leaving with two bottles of hydrocone, according to Manna, who said Dalton was charged with numerous drug offenses last month.

A subsequent investigation revealed Dalton had been pilfering drugs from the store since late in 2010, said Manna. The charges against Dalton were elevated on Friday, said Manna, and the case has been referred to the Essex County Prosecutor?s Office.
