James City nurse charged after allegedly stealing opioids from assisted living center

Staff Writer

A James City County woman was criminally charged after her former employer said she either stole or improperly disposed of Oxycodone.

Incilay Iclal Manley, 31, was charged with possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance, embezzlement and falsifying patient records with intent to defraud, according to filings in Williamsburg-James City County General District Court.

On Nov. 6, a manager at Edgeworth Park at New Town assisted living facility filed a report with the James City County Police Department claiming Manley, a licensed practical nurse at the facility, stole or improperly disposed of two-325 milligram Oxycodone pills and tried to cover it up, court documents said.

Manley took three of the opioid pills from the dispensary but only gave her patient one of them, according to the filings.

One of the pills broke, Manley said in the filing and she had intended to dispose of it properly. Manley also said she only took two pills from the dispensary.

However, the pills were not “wasted” or disposed of properly as the facility required, the court documents said.

Manley passed a drug screening after the incident, the filings said.

Edgeworth Park at New Town terminated Manley’s employment, according to the court documents. James City County police charged Manley on Dec. 5 with the three crimes, and she was served arrest warrants on Dec. 11 at 5:49 p.m.

Manley was released that same day on a $5,000 unsecured bond after she turned herself in to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, according to court records.

Manley’s next court appearance is at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 18 in Williamsburg-James City County General District Court, according to online court records.
