Woman arrested for prescription fraud

A Crossett, Arkansas, woman was arrested Friday as she attempted to pick up drugs at a Ruston pharmacy that had received fraudulent prescriptions.

Destiny Aurora Culbreath, 31, was arrested Friday by the Lincoln Parish Narcotics Enforcement Team after she went to Ruston Apothecare to pick up a prescription of Xanax.

In July, the pharmacy notified LPNET that prescriptions for Culbreath had been called into the pharmacy for Xanax tablets.

On August 3, a woman called the pharmacy with a third prescription for Culbreath for 30 more Xanax tablets. The pharmacy was advised not to fill the prescription and notify LPNET if more prescriptions were received.

On August 23, the pharmacy was told Culbreath would be coming to Ruston on August 25 to get the prescription. She was met by LPNET and taken into custody.

Culbreath told LPNET she knew the woman who worked at a doctor’s office in Monticello. She also admitted requesting all three prescriptions and picking up the July 7 and July 21 prescriptions.

Culbreath was booked for three counts of obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud. She is also being held for the Texarkana Police Department and the Arkansas Probation & Parole on other charges.

The driver of the car who took Culbreath to the pharmacy, Latara D. Parker, 33, also of Crossett, was arrested at the scene for possession of marijuana and four counts of illegal use of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of persons under 17. Four children were also occupying the car.
