JPD: Woman arrested after altering prescription | Crime
A Jonesboro woman has a date with a judge after police say she changed the date on a prescription for Adderall.
According to Officer William Brumfield’s initial report, 32-year-old Nancy Johnson changed the “do not fill by date” on the prescription from October 19 to August 19.
When she tried to get it filled, an employee of Soo’s Pharmacy, 2822 E. Nettleton Ave. saw that the prescription had been altered and faxed a copy to her doctor’s office. According to the report, the doctor confirmed the prescription had been changed.
During questioning, Brumfield said Johnson admitted she had marked over the date to “make it legible;” but, Johnson said “she didn’t know she changed the date so she could get the prescription earlier.”
Brumfield arrested Johnson and took her to the Craighead County Detention Center where she was charged with fraud or deceit to procure a narcotic, a class D felony. She's scheduled to appear in District Court on Thursday afternoon where a judge will set bond.
