SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a former pharmacy technician at a Springfield hospital stole morphine and the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl and then replaced the drugs with saline solution.

The U.S. attorney's office says 36-year-old Marc Musil was indicted Tuesday on two counts of tampering with a consumer product. The indictment alleges that Musil was working for Mercy Medical Center in Springfield last summer when he removed the fentanyl and morphine from syringes.
