MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - $15,000 worth of drugs were stolen from the Memphis vet who helped save Joey, the abandoned dog found starving eating rocks in Tunica. An angry boyfriend exposed the theft.
Former vet tech Amy Keller is accused of stealing dog medicine from Central Animal Hospital in midtown Memphis and selling it online.
According to police, after getting into a fight Keller's boyfriend called the animal hospital and ratted her out. Then he called again and tried to take his story back, but it was too late. The hospital had started sniffing around and police were on the case.
Keller is out of jail after being arrested Friday, November 9, and charged with stealing Trifexis, a medication used to prevent heartworms in dogs. She refused to speak with ABC 24 News.
While at Keller's home it was clear she has at least one dog; police say the stolen drugs weren't for her pet - rather she was selling them online.
Police say Keller's boyfriend called the hospital, which had also received a call from a drug rep who had traced boxes of the drug for sale online back to the hospital.
Keller is charged with theft over $10,000 and is out of a job.
No word whether Keller is still with her boyfriend after his phone call exposed it all.
