State Police and Howard County authorities arrested a Cass County woman Saturday for allegedly writing fraudulent prescriptions to obtain powerful pain killers.
State Police say 42-year old Heidi Hodson of Galveston was arrested for allegedly forging signatures of a Kokomo doctor whom she had worked for and writing several prescriptions on stolen prescription pads from that doctor.
Investigators say the doctor contacted them about his suspicions that the prescription fraud involving Hodson was going on.
Hodson now faces two counts of Forgery and four counts of Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Fraud. She’s now being held in the Howard County Jail.
