WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A 35-year-old woman is behind bars after deputies say she admitted to stealing a Tallahassee doctor's prescription pad and forged prescriptions in her husband's name to get Adderall.
On Tuesday, detectives at the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office arrested Christie Carraway Reeves, 35, for four counts of acquire or obtain, or attempt to obtain a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge.
On July 20, deputies say a woman, who identified herself as Mrs. Reeves, went into a pharmacy in Crawfordville and dropped off a forged prescription in the name of her husband for Adderall, a Schedule II Controlled Substance.
The pharmacist refused to fill the order, seized the forged prescription, and reported the incident to the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives discovered that on July 9, a Tallahassee physician reported a prescription pad missing to the Tallahassee Police Department. Investigators determined that Reeves had been a babysitter for the physician during which time the pad was likely stolen.
WCSO says they determined that three previously forged prescriptions for Adderall had been passed on May 3 for 30 pills, May 11 for 90 pills, and June 10 for 90 pills at the same pharmacy. They also determined that the person that signed for them was Christie Reeves’ husband.
When detectives obtained surveillance video footage and documentation from the attempted transaction on July 20, the video depicted a woman walking from a vehicle registered to Christie Reeves, which was parked in front of the pharmacy. The woman then entered the pharmacy and subsequently tried to get the prescription filled.
Using a social media search, deputies found pictures from a social media account that matched the female depicted in the pharmacy surveillance video footage.
Based on the evidence, deputies issued a warrant for Christie Reeves with one count of attempt to acquire or obtain, possession of a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge.
On Tuesday, a deputy made contact with Reeves on an unrelated call and arrested her.
When they spoke to Reeves, they say she admitted to stealing the prescription pad from the physician’s residence, admitted to forging three prescriptions, and passing them at the pharmacy in Crawfordville. She stated she obtained the Adderall for personal consumption and said that her husband was not involved, nor did he take any of the pills.
Reeves was booked into the Wakulla County Jail.
