GLENS FALLS -- A Glens Falls woman was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly tried to fill a forged painkiller prescription at a Broad Street pharmacy, police said.
Nicole L. Oberle, 30, of South Street was charged after a pharmacist at the Walgreens on Broad Street questioned the prescription slip, which had originated from a hospital in the Bronx, Glens Falls Police said.
The prescription was for 240 oxycodone pills, Glens Falls Police Detective Sgt. Seth French said.
“It looked out of place to have a prescription from a Bronx hospital up here,” French said.
Oberle told police she had been asked to fill the prescription by a man who told her he would pay her $200. She did not have any money, and it was unclear whether the prescription was to be paid for through Medicaid or some other means, he said.
Oberle was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony, and charged with misdemeanor counts of conspiracy and attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance.
She was released pending prosecution in City Court.
