A Lindale woman has been arrested after writing improper prescriptions for oxycodone while she was an employee at the Northwest Georgia Medical Clinic on Riverbend Drive, according to reports.
According to Floyd County Jail and Rome police reports:
Breannah Lynn Snow, 32, of 412 Strawberry Lane, was arrested Tuesday evening by Rome police and was released from jail Wednesday.
An employee at the clinic told police that she had received calls from local pharmacies about Snow filling her forged prescriptions at their businesses. Snow admitted to this employee when questioned by her that she had been writing her own prescriptions and having them filled.
Police questioned Snow at the clinic Tuesday and she told an officer she had forged prescriptions for oxycodone, which she has become addicted to. She said she had surgery on her back a couple months ago. When her doctor stopped prescribing her oxycodone, she took to forging the prescriptions, starting this last December.
On Dec. 21, 2017, Snow prescribed herself 42 oxycodone pills. She then went on to prescribe herself 60 pills Jan. 2, 240 pills Jan. 19 and 42 pills Jan. 29.
As she was being arrested, she told an officer she had an empty oxycodone bottle and three and a half loose pills in her purse.
She is charged with felony forgery and felony possession of controlled substances after writing a prescription without the permission of her employer.
