According to authorities, Michigan State Police troopers were called to an assisted living facility in Otsego County in September 2021. Police said the manager of the facility claimed an employee had stolen medication kept in a locked box.

Police said an arrest warrant was authorized Jan. 13 and troopers were able to locate Coger -- who was staying with a relative in Antrim County -- and take her into police custody Wednesday.

Coger was charged with once count of larceny in a building and one count of possession of a controlled substance -- hydrocodone.

She is expected to return to court Jan. 27.
