When Frazier was being discharged from the emergency room, a nurse allegedly picked up his personal property bag and noticed a large amount of medication inside, according to police. 

When asked if the bag was his, Frazier allegedly denied it and rushed out of the hospital without the bag. 

Police say a nurse noticed the security seals on a crash cart in Frazier's Marathon hospital room were broken. 

Hospital officials checked the cart and figured out that the medications in the suspect’s bag were taken from the cart, officials said. Police said other medication was missing, but not found in the property bag.

Frazier, who is a technician in Big Pine Key, was ordered held on no bond.
