Agent D.R. Radford of the City County Drug Task Force confirmed Vicky Jo Green, 41, successfully obtained Oxycodone through fraudulent means and allegedly made another unsuccessful attempt.
The task force began an investigation in February after it received information from Roanoke Rapids police and Halifax County Sheriff’s Office investigators about a woman making fraudulent prescriptions and obtaining them illegally, Radford said in a statement.
Radford’s investigation identified Green as the alleged suspect.
Radford said this afternoon it was not clear how Green obtained prescription forms — whether they were purchased online, someone printed them for her or other means.
Radford has obtained warrants for her arrest in the sheriff’s office case for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or forgery and the police department’s case for attempt to obtain a controlled substance by fraud or forgery.
Special Agent Paul Munson of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Diversion & Environmental Crimes Unit assisted in the investigation.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is encouraged to call Halifax County Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444 or log on to www.halifaxsheriff.com to submit a tip.
