Woman charged with forgery in drug-scrip case


LIVERMORE FALLS – A Jay woman remained at an Auburn jail Monday accused of altering a doctor’s prescription to get the highly addictive pain killer Oxycodone, Livermore Falls Police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said.

Danielle Adams, 20, was arrested Friday on charges of acquiring drugs by deception, forgery and violation of bail conditions, Steward said.

Adams was able to gain the filled prescription from the Rite Aid pharmacy in Livermore Falls, he said, but store personnel caught the forgery and called police.

The incident happened about 8:30 or 9 a.m., and Adams was arrested at 2 p.m., he said.

He didn’t know if any of the pills from the prescription were missing when Adams was arrested, he said.

Part of the reason she was charged with violating bail conditions was because she previously did the same thing with another doctor’s prescription in Farmington, Steward said.

Adams was taken to the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn and was still being held on $500 cash bail Monday afternoon.
