Police: Lower Nazareth Woman Tried to Use Phony Prescription

A Lower Nazareth woman is accused of trying to get drugs from a Nazareth pharmacy using a phony prescription.

Crystal Anne Butz, 34, of the 4000 block of Steuben Road, is charged with identity theft, possession of a controlled substance and acquisition by misrepresentation.

According to court records, Butz tried to fill a prescription for three drugs -- clonazepam, zolpidem and hydrocodone -- at the Rite Aid in Nazareth. Nazareth police say Butz was using a prescription from a doctor who told the pharmacy he hadn't seen Butz as a patient since April.

According to the National Institute of Heath, clonazepam is an anti-seizure medication. Zolpidem is a sleeping pill, and hydrocodone is a painkiller.

Butz was arraigned before on-duty District Judge Richard Yetter of Wilson, and was free on $35,000 bail.
