CUMMING, Ga. — An executive with Georgia Highlands Medical Services on Tribble Gap Road reported to authorities Aug. 6 a fraudulent medical prescription. The female suspect used a false prescription with a forged signature at Walgreens pharmacy on Peachtree Parkway. The pharmacy noticed that the prescription was fake and refused to complete the order. All paperwork was confiscated from the suspect.

The suspect’s name and description did not match any of the registered patients at the facility. The practice name, address, doctor’s name, and ID numbers seen on the paper all matched with those of the practice. It is unknown how the suspect obtained the information. Walgreens is looking for surveillance footage of the exchange.
