Darien Police say a Bronx woman obtained 240 narcotic painkilling pills from Grieb’s Pharmacy by forging prescriptions.
Monroe Police informed Darien officers in June of 2011 that Bianca Thompson, 23, along with two others, was arrested for buying oxycodone tablets from a Rite Aid store in Monroe. Monroe told Darien that Thompson may have also bought pills from Grieb’s using forged prescriptions.
Police investigated and learned that on June 13, 2011, Thompson had fraudulently obtained 240 oxycodone tablets from Grieb’s using a bogus prescription never issued by the prescribing physician, police said. Thompson was also captured and identified via the pharmacy’s video system, according to police. A warrant for her arrest was then applied for, and Thompson turned herself in on Tuesday, Feb. 19.
She faces charges of obtaining a controlled drug by fraud, obtaining a controlled drug by forged prescription and illegal use of a false prescription. She was released on a written promise to appear in court on Friday, March 1.
