Two Milwaukee women are accused of passing forged prescriptions for Oxycodone at area pharmacies.
Sierra L. Jackson, 21, and Aleah J. Morris, 19, were each charged Tuesday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court with one count of obtaining a controlled substance by misrepresentation, one count of attempting to obtain a controlled substance by misrepresentation, and one count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. If convicted, they each face up to 16 years in prison and $70,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Oct. 20, Wauwatosa police officers were called to Walgreens, 2275 N. Mayfair Road, after Jackson came into the store and tried to pass a forged prescription. Officers spotted her car nearby and pulled her over with Morris riding as a passenger.
Jackson first said that when she came to the store, there was a man outside who said he forgot his ID and needed help filling a prescription, so she went in and filled it for him. Morris backed up the story; however, officers discovered Jackson had somehow supplied the pharmacist the correct date of birth for the man to whom the prescription was written, despite saying he was a total stranger.
Officers found Oxycodone pills in the center console of the car, all listed to different men, which had been filled from area pharmacies.
The two women then admitted they'd gotten the prescriptions from a friend who offered to pay them to fill them at area pharmacies.
Both women will make their initial appearances in court Dec. 28.
