Wyckoff New Jersey police arrested a woman accused of committing forgery so that she could illegally obtain prescription medicine.
The 47-year-old suspect, who resides in West Milford, New Jersey, was employed at a doctor’s office in Wyckoff, NJ. She allegedly forged her boss’ signature on prescription pads in order to get medication.
According to Wyckoff law enforcement, a physician discovered the suspect’s crimes when he noticed that several prescriptions had been written in his name. The physician made the discovery while performing a prescription audit.
The doctor contacted local law enforcement, which immediately opened an investigation into the suspect.
Wyckoff investigators talked the suspect and reportedly learned that she used a fake prescription to get 30 Percocet pills from a pharmacy located in Wyckoff, New Jersey.
The suspect was eventually arrested and charged with multiple crimes, including theft, forgery, and obtaining a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) via fraud.
The suspect will be required to appear in Bergen County Superior Court, located in Hackensack, NJ, so that she can address the criminal charges against her.
