LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a former employee of a local doctor's office for her alleged involvement in a scheme to obtain fraudulent Hydrocodone prescriptions.
According to an arrest report, 36-year-old Elizabeth Kannapel worked for the Palo Alto Spine center, for Dr. Frank Castro, during the months of August and September.
During that time period, police say she used her access to and knowledge of the medical field to take blank prescriptions.
Police say that on four different occasions, Kannapel was able to help four accomplices obtain Hydrocodone. Those four codefendants later took the fraudulent prescriptions -- some of which were written out, and some of which were filled in -- to various local pharmacies, where they attempted to have them filled.
In return for her involvement in the scheme, Kannapel would receive some of the Hydrocodone pills that were obtained, according to police.
Police emphasize that Dr. Frank Castro was not involved and had no knowledge of what was happening.
Kannapel was arrested on Friday morning and charged with four counts if unlawful procurement of a controlled substance.
Earlier this year, police arrested her alleged accomplices, 36-year-old Maxwell A. Minzenberger, 37-year-old Andrew Schreck, 47-year-old Michael W. Summers and 45-year-old Randy L. Willock.
All four of the alleged accomplices are charged with the unlawful procurement of a controlled substance.
