A nurse in southern New Jersey is accused of stealing the prescription painkiller Vicodin from a Vineland nursing home where she worked, instead giving patients Tylenol. Thirty-year-old Sarah Taman of Woodbine is charged with possession of prescription medication, endangering the welfare of the elderly and theft.

Police say that when she was arrested Sunday, she had eight Vicodin pills on her.

Taman has been released from jail. Reached at her home Monday, she said she had no comment.
