A woman is accused of filling fraudulent prescriptions at four different pharmacies in Bismarck.
Bismarck Police say the incidents happened between August 26 and August 28th.
The state board of pharmacy contacted three of the pharmacies after they discovered the prescriptions were fraudulant.
A letter sent to the pharmacies said the doctor's signature was a fraud.
The pharmacies all described the woman similarly.
About 5 foot 1, 100 pounds with dark hair, dark skin, in her early 20's.
At one of the pharmacies the pharmacist said she needed to do more research before filling it, and the woman left and did not return.
Promethazine with codine and amoxicillin were the two prescriptions the woman was trying to fill.
