MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a man convicted for stealing nearly 50,000 prescription pills from a North Dakota American Indian hospital pharmacy acted alone.

Timothy Davis Jr. is scheduled to be sentenced next week in federal court on charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute hydrocodone, and acquisition of a controlled substance by misrepresentation.

Authorities say Davis took the painkillers from the Quentin N. Burdick hospital, which was the basis of a congressional investigation spearheaded by former North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan.

Davis is scheduled to be sentenced next week. A sentencing document released last week says Davis is solely responsible for 48,710 missing hydrocodone tablets.

Three other people are charged in the case. Jordan Delong and Candace Keplin have pleaded guilty. John Allery has pleaded not guilty.
