An Ohio woman was charged over the weekend, accused of trying to fill a prescription by fraudulent means.

The Salisbury Police say Jackie Leazer, 26, of West Middle Street, Burbank, Ohio, pretended to be a nurse, called in her own prescription for Percocet, a pain reliever, and Cipro, an antibiotic, to an East Innes Street Walgreens. Leazer had also indicated she would be picking up a prescription for hydrocodone.

A suspicious pharmacist called Hope Medical Associates in Albemarle after receiving a called-in prescription, later determined to have been made by Leazer. A doctor at the Albemarle facility told the pharmacist the facility would not have authorized a nurse to call in a patient’s prescription. Leazer had a prescription from Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.

The pharmacist told Leazer her prescription would take 45 minutes to fill and in the meantime the pharmacist contacted law enforcement. As Leazer left the pharmacy, police were waiting for her outside. Leazer was charged with trafficking in opium or heroin and obtaining a controlled substance by forgery.
