'Nurse' calls in prescription

After allegedly posing as a nurse to call in a prescription for herself, a Malvern woman faces local charges of defrauding a pharmacy.
Kimberly M. Davis, of 1847 Riggans Road, is charged with obtaining a controlled substance by fraudulent practices. She was arrested March 10 in the Brookshire's parking lot after a Group 6 Narcotics agent intercepted her purchase of muscle relaxers and pain pills.
Court documents indicate that Davis, 32, called the Brookshire's pharmacy "claiming to be" a nurse from a Malvern medical clinic to fill a prescription for Soma, hydrocodone and clonazepam. The pharmacist called that doctor's office to confirm the prescription "but were notified that no one from that office had called in a prescription for Davis," according to an affidavit filed with Clark County Prosecutor Blake Batson.
The pharmacist was instructed to contact Group 6 agent Sgt. Brent Whitworth if Davis arrived to pick up the medications. She did, and Whitworth went as well, reportedly watching as Davis took possession of the prescription.
Contact was made with Davis as she was exiting the front door of Brookshire's. Whitworth took possession of the 150 pills Davis had in three separate bottles. Davis was taken into custody and transported to the Clark County Sheriff's Office for further questioning.
Obtaining a controlled substance by fraud is a Class D felony, punishable by up to six years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
