Philadelphia woman tries passing fake scripts at Palmer pharmacy

Philadelphia woman tries passing fake scripts at Palmer pharmacy

PALMER TWP., Pa. – A Philadelphia woman is facing fraud charges after she allegedly arrived at a Northampton County pharmacy Wednesday night with fake prescriptions for more than 200 pills.

Police arrested Samantha M. Brown at a Palmer Township Rite Aid with fraudulent prescriptions for Oxycodone, Alprazolam and Flexiril. The 25-year-old now faces three felony counts of trying to acquire a controlled substance. District Judge James Narlesky arraigned Brown late Wednesday night, setting bail at $7,500.

Palmer Township police were dispatched to the Rite Aid at 601 S. 25th St. about 8:30 p.m. The pharmacist told officers that a woman later identified as Brown was sitting in the waiting area, according to court records.

The pharmacist said she tried filling prescriptions for 120 30 mg tablets of Oxycodone, 60 1 mg tablets of Alprazolam and 30 10 mg tablets of Flexiril. Alprazolam is an anxiety medication, and Flexiril is a muscle relaxant.

The prescription was in another person’s name, and the pharmacist told police that she confirmed with the doctor listed on the script that it was a fake. A search of the doctor’s name listed in the criminal complaint shows a physician in Williamsport, Lycoming County.

The doctor notified the pharmacist that the prescription was not filled out in the manner he usually writes scripts and that the person listed on the prescription was not a patient.
