LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Scott County, Indiana, woman is facing several felony charges after police say she stole money and prescription medications from the doctor's office where she was employed.

According to a news release from Indiana State Police, 28-year-old Courtney Brewer turned herself in Thursday afternoon.

Police say she had been employed at the office of a Scottsburg doctor. At some point, police say the doctor began to notice evidence of both financial fraud and prescription fraud. The doctor then notified Indiana State Police, who conducted an investigation that lasted nearly 10 months.
