OLYMPIA, Wash. – A woman has been arrested in the theft of 20 doses of swine flu vaccine from an Olympia hospice.

The Thurston County Sheriff's Office says the 37-year-old Ohio woman is a contractor for Providence Sound Home Care and Hospice at 3432 South Bay Road NE and had access to the area where the H1N1 vaccine was kept. She was booked on first-degree theft and released.

Detectives say the suspect had admitted to at least two people that she stole the vaccine. The suspect has not admitted to police that she committed the crime.

No vaccine has been recovered.
