JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Johns Creek police are investigating an incident in which a woman attempted to file a fake prescription for codeine at the Target CVS on State Bridge Road. 

The pharmacy manager said that a young black woman wearing a blue cut-off top and skinny jeans dropped off a prescription around 2 p.m., May 29. The doctor listed on the paper said he did not have a patient with the name on the prescription. 

The prescription was for 180 mL of codeine-promethazine, an opiate pain reliever. The pharmacist said they became suspicious because the amount was abnormally high. The suspect never returned to collect the prescription.
