A nurse at a well-known nursing home in Porter has been arrested on seven warrants, five of which were the result of indictments on drug charges, officials said.

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.
