Doctor Reports Prescription Fraud

Tullahoma Police are investigating a fraud at Tennova-Harton Hospital.
On Jan. 1, Doctor Scott Giles reported to Tullahoma Police Officer Karl Pyrdom that a white female entered the emergency room and stated that she was moving from California to Florida and had run out of her medication while staying with a friend. He wrote her a prescription for pain medication and she left the emergency room.
After she left he was informed that she had been to the hospital on Dec. 22 and told the same story and was given a prescription.
The officer was provided information where the white female had used the same name but with different spelling.
Detective Tyler Hatfield is investigating the incident.
