Target pharmacy worker faces drug charges

HOLIDAY — A June 21 car crash led to the arrest Monday of a 19-year-old Target pharmacy technician on drug charges.

Jacqueline Marie Baron was involved in a single-car crash on U.S. 19, south of Moog Road, last month. When deputies responded to the scene, they looked in the car and found prescription medication in plastic bags with the red Target logo on them, according to a Pasco Sheriff's Office report.

A Target corporate investigator told deputies that Baron worked at the Super Target at 2900 Little Road as a pharmacy technician. The investigator also said an inventory showed the store was missing the same amount of medication, valued at $342. Baron did not have a prescription for it, the report said.

Baron was arrested Monday at the store on a charge of trafficking in hydrocodone, two counts of possession of a controlled substance (Xanax and Soma), grand theft, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. Deputies said they found marijuana and a glass pipe in Baron's purse when she was arrested.

Baron, of 4348 Plaza Drive in Holiday, was being held at the county jail in lieu of $65,500 bail on Tuesday.
