KINGSPORT - A licensed practical nurse who was employed at a Kingsport nursing home has been arrested on numerous charges, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The TBI says Summer Brook Lane, 33, of 3304 Clinch Stone Road, St. Paul, Va., was arrested Tuesday, after a Sullivan County grand jury returned a sealed indictment against her on April 20. She is charged with one count of abuse, neglect or exploitation of a dependent adult, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, deceit, or theft and theft of property under $500.

The TBI reports Lane stole narcotics intended for patients during the summer of 2009, while employed as a nurse at the Holston Manor Nursing Home, 3641 Memorial Boulevard.

Lane was booked into the Sullivan County jail on $25,000 bond. She is scheduled for an initial court appearance on June 11, 2010.
