Body

The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department continues to crack down on prescription drug trafficking and forgery. Detectives put another alleged prescription drug trafficker behind bars. This time, the person arrested is a registered nurse in the county.

Staci Avery Wood of Southport was arrested late Wednesday afternoon after detectives got a tip from another health care professional. She worked as a nurse in the maternity ward at Brunswick Community Hospital. Hospital officials would not comment as to whether or not she is still currently employed there.

Detectives say they found Wood in possession of nearly 30 grams of amphetamines, an extremely powerful form of speed.

Wood is facing one count of trafficking amphetamines, one count of obtaining a controlled substance through fraud or forgery, one count of possessing a Schedule II controlled substance, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Wood is out of jail on bond. The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
