A Merrill woman was arrested late last week after attempting to fill another person’s prescription.
The investigation began on Wednesday after an inmate in the Lincoln County jail reported that a woman called an area pharmacy claiming the contact was on his behalf. The woman attempted to get his narcotic prescription re-filled.
The woman was located over the weekend at a Town of Harding residence, where she was taken into custody and brought to the jail.
The woman is being charged with attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud. She has a bond hearing scheduled for this afternoon in Lincoln County Court.
