Theft Charges Dropped Against Minot Nurse

Charges of theft, conspiracy and endangering a vulnerable adult against two other nurses are still pending

MINOT, ND — A theft charge has been dropped against a Minot nurse accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients in hospice.

It isn’t clear why the charge against 40-year-old Jennifer Napora was dropped last week.

Charges of theft, conspiracy and endangering a vulnerable adult against two other nurses are still pending.

April Beckler, 39, and 45-year-old Kim Kochel haven’t yet entered pleas and are due in court December 14.

The drug thefts are alleged to have taken place between 2012 and 2014 while the nurses worked for Trinity Hospital’s Home Health and Hospice.
