The Mooresville Police Department recently arrested 10 people who are alleged to have committed prescription drug fraud by using stolen prescription pads to obtain oxycodone, a painkiller.

Detective Brad Yarnell said the suspects, who were mostly from the Indianapolis area, had obtained a prescription pad from OrthoIndy in Brownsburg and used them to forge prescriptions at the Mooresville Walgreens and CVS.

“They were switching the people up more than the pharmacies,” he said Tuesday.

The suspects include Pamela Cox, Justin Weber, Jennifer Hacker, Lindsay McCreary, Debbie King, Jessica Mooring, Jennifer Wechsler, Shirley Mercer, Joshua Connell and Curtis Turner.

Yarnell said all of the above have been charged with forgery, a Class C felony; prescription fraud, a Class D felony; and possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony.

Yarnell said OrthoIndy had alerted the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department of the missing prescription pads at the beginning of August, and IMPD notified Mooresville police of them being used in the Mooresville area.

He said the prescriptions were also being used in Hendricks and Marion counties.

Police were then given a spreadsheet of the prescriptions passed in Mooresville, and video of them being used led to the arrests of the 10 suspects, the detective said.

He said oxycodone is a Schedule 2 pain medication, which means it is classified as being highly addictive. The suspects were obtaining 120 pills at a time, Yarnell said.

Yarnell said the case is still under investigation. He said all of the suspects have been interviewed, but they were uncooperative. Police are attempting to trace the prescriptions back to OrthoIndy, Yarnell said.

He said prescription drugs are of increasing concern to the department. Yarnell referenced several other cases the department is working on that deal with the medications.“It’s the new drug,” he said.
