Nurse arrested at Porter nursing home


Amber Leigh Fox, 33, of Porter was arrested Thursday at her place of employment -- Pine Shadow Retreat Nursing Home.

The Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable's Office said she was arrested on multiple felony drug-related warrants and three other warrants.

Fox, also known as Amber Miller, was indicted on four counts of fraudulent possession of a controlled substance (prescription) and one count of engaging in organized crime. She also had two outstanding Pct. 4 warrants for display of a fictitious license plate and failure to appear.

A tip led to Fox's arrest while on duty at the nursing home. Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth "Rowdy" Hayden said the situation was unsettling on many levels.

"It's disturbing to find someone who's been indicted on five felony drug charges is a nurse, but it's worse to learn she's employed at a nursing home," Hayden said in a statement released Saturday. "And this was not even the first time we've arrested Ms. Fox."

Fox was being held at Montgomery County Jail on Saturday. Bond was set at $75,000.
