Sketchy prescription for sleep aid leads to arrest | Crime
A Pascagoula woman was arrested Monday accused of prescription fraud.
According to Ocean Springs Police Detective William Jackson, 32-year-old Christina Lynn Brock got her hands on a prescription pad that reportedly resembled one used by medical doctors.
Brock's arrest stems after an incident at Rite Aide. Jackson said the suspect wrote her own prescription for Ambien, which is a sedative used to treat insomnia.
Jackson said Brock's prescription called for 30 Ambien.
"The Rite Aide Pharmacist noticed something suspicious and contacted police," Jackson said.
She was booked under a $10,000 bond.
If convicted, she could face up to a minimum of one year in jail or a maximum of five years in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
Brock has already posted bail.
