Missouri mom admits stealing dying daughter's pain meds

A drug-addicted Missouri mom was busted this week for swiping pain medication from her terminally ill daughter - and taking it herself, cops said.

Cops executed a search warrant at Ballweg's home on Tuesday - where she fessed up to having an opioid addiction and taking the meds herself.

So doctors chose to screen CM's urine and found no traces of her prescribed drugs - prompting them to no longer fill her prescriptions, cops said. It did not show any of the medications, even though the woman's mother repeatedly requested refills ahead of schedule.
