MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A grand jury indicted a Central Point couple accused of forging prescriptions for thousands of pain pills over a three-year period.
Jason and Jodi Setzer have been charged with theft and aggravated identity theft.
The Mail Tribune newspaper (http://is.gd/9Fgw6B) reports that Jodi Setzer was the officer manager for a Medford dentist, and the authorities believe she and her husband forged the dentist's signature to fill hydrocodone prescriptions.
Detectives say the doctor's office was investigating a possible embezzlement tied to Setzer when the records for bogus prescriptions were found.
Investigators discovered that more than 10 pharmacies had filled several pain medication prescriptions for the Setzers.
