Former Cleveland Clinic pharmacist indicted in theft of thousands of antidepressants

A former Cleveland Clinic pharmacy manager was indicted April 4 on felony charges of aggravated theft, distributing a dangerous drug and deception to obtain a dangerous drug, according to court documents.

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy filed suit in January against David Reamensnyder, reported. The board claimed he stole more than 1,400 Wellbutrin tablets, 800 Lexapro tablets, 500 Zoloft tablets and 550 finasteride tablets from Cleveland Clinics' Hillcrest Hospital Pharmacy from about October 2018 through June 2021.

Becker's asked the system about Mr. Reamensnyder's duration of employment, his roles and why he stopped working there. A spokesperson sent the response: "Once we became aware of this matter, we immediately initiated an internal review and notified the State of Ohio Pharmacy Board. His employment was terminated following our investigation."

According to a now-deleted LinkedIn profile, Mr. Reamensnyder was promoted to pharmacy operations manager in January 2018 and left the hospital in July 2021, reported. His pharmacy license is still active.

He has started multiple companies recently, including a cryptocurrency company and a small business incubator, the report said.

His arraignment is scheduled for April 19.
