I'd like to apologize in advance for the length of this, but I believe every detail is vital for NS to understand, and help me out.
On the way to Stevens pass yesterday, I stopped by the pharmacy to pick up my grandmas meds that she gets from medicare every month. When I got back from the mountain, I gave her the meds, and within 30 minutes she called me, and bitched me out for stealing her oxy's.
I went with a buddy who I've known for a long time.. Him and his twin brother both have addictive personalities and have had problems with Rx pain killers in the past.
Recently one of the brothers broke his hand, and when he asked the doc for stronger pain killers, the doc said no. (I assume his mother confronted the doctor, away from the patients room, to explain his past with pain killers)
He was pretty upset about it, and would take out his anger out on me, up until yesterday.. the day that 40 oxy pills (Vicodin) went missing.
Actually yesterday was the nicest he has been to me in months, and i find it impossible to believe considering he quit smoking pot 2 days ago after smoking daily for about 5 years.
that wasn't the only suspicious behavior that I noticed. His brother, the one I was skiing with, was the only one that knew where I put those meds (in my ski bag with the rest of my shit) he had been texting his bro about something but wouldn't tell me what. Also, when I went over to their crib to kick it after skiing he told me to take my ski bag from out his car and bring it into his crib. I said "No, what's the point?" He couldn't think of a reason and I assumed it was just because my brother was picking me up soon. so I said "oh word, so I could grab my gear and bounce when my bro gets here." He agreed, and I was to positive to assume he would even consider taking them.
He also had to convince me to come hang out after skiing....
Him and his bro have joked abut taking them in the past, but they also could have been 100% serious about it.
here is the evidence I have.
-The bag containing the pills was open.
-There were 3 bags, each bag contained 2 bottles, each bottle had something different in it.
-There were 6 slips, each one with a different prescription info sticker on them.
-One of the slips was missing a sticker with all the info.
-The only bottle missing was the one with Vicodin.
-I have the empty slip and the bag the bottle was in, in a zip-lock bag as hard evidence.
I really don't know what to do next. I thought about contacting the authorities because if they did indeed do the deed, than i could care less if they get charged with a felony and I never see them again. for all we know they may have just put my grandmother in her grave, she's going to have a gnarly come down from it and may not survive the fall.
I haven't yet talked to them about it and I haven't hinted that anything is wrong yet.
I've talked to mutual friends though who aren't as good of friends with them, and everyone I told the story to concluded it was them.
My grandmother called the pharmacist to confirm that the oxy's were indeed in the prescription and it was in fact there.
so NS, what's my next move?
How should I get these guys to fess up?
