A former Mitchell pharmacist accused of stealing thousands of dollars of drugs from Walgreen’s pharmacy in Mitchell has begun serving his jail sentence. 60-year old Jim Buechler pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony, which is a misdemeanor. He had originally been charged with possession of a controlled substance and grand theft, which are felonies. Buechler reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in which the felony charges were dropped. He will serve ten days in the Davison County Jail.
