A Chambersburg woman was arrested Thursday after she allegedly tried to have fraudulent prescriptions for oxycodone filled at four Greensburg-area pharmacies.

City police said Jennifer Rose Thims, 24, dropped off a prescription for 120 pills at the Med-Fast Pharmacy at 730 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg.

The prescription bore the name of an Allegheny County rehabilitation center. The pharmacist recognized the name of the physician as fake from earlier fraudulent prescriptions, police said. The pharmacist called police while Thims visited other pharmacies, and she eventually acquired oxycodone at one, police said.

A driver apparently took Thims to each stop. and promised her $300 for the first prescription of pills and $200 for each additional bottle, police said. The driver fled when police arrived at Med-Fast.

Thims was arraigned before District Judge James Albert on charges of criminal attempt and procurement of drugs by fraud.

She was placed in Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $11,000 bond and faces a preliminary hearing on Dec. 5.
