According to Barrow County Sheriff’s Office, Daniel E. Rampey, 67, of Statham, was charged with unauthorized distribution or possession of a controlled substance, burglary, and exploitation and intimidation of disabled adults, elderly persons and residents, WSB-TV reported.

Officials said deputies recently began investigating Rampey after “suspicious activity involving missing medications” at Magnolia Estates of Winder Assisted Living Center, where he worked for nearly four decades.

“We had a couple of instances of him on video taking [prescription narcotics],” Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith said, claiming, “We actually filmed him going into the residence and taking the items.”

The Athens Banner-Herald reported Rampey, a Republican, was elected state House Representative in District 116 after he ran unopposed in last November’s elections.

He was set to take office in January.
