Town Woman Faces Prescription Fraud Charges

A Greenwich woman faces multiple charges stemming from the use of a forged prescription to obtain the powerful painkiller oxycodone from a local pharmacy.

Jessica Riddle, 26, who gave an address of 42 Hartford Ave., surrendered May 16 to police who obtained the arrest warrant after "investigative efforts determined there was a fraudelent prescription. The investigation is continuing," said Greenwich Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray.

Riddle was charged with obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, obtaining a controlled substance by forgery, illegal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree forgery, conspiracy and criminal attempt. The charges stem from a Jan. 31 incident at Grannick's Pharmacy, 277 Greenwich Ave.

She was released on a written promise to appear May 30 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
