A paramedic with the Eagle Grove Ambulance Service faces charges after an incident earlier this week. Forty-six-year-old David Allen Baker of Eagle Grove is charged with the unlawful possession of a prescription drug and two counts of nonfelonious misconduct in office.
Last Monday, the city of Eagle Grove E.M.S. director notified the Wright County Sheriff’s office that on two occasions in the past week, the service has been missing narcotics. The ambulance service inventory was missing four 50-miligram vials of Demorol.
All of the missing narcotics were recovered during the investigation. Baker turned himself into the Wright County Sheriff’s office this morning and has been released on his own recognizance.
