City of Northville police arrested a 21-year-old Northville woman Sept. 24 to be charged for fraudulent procurement of narcotics, according to a police report.
A woman told police that she thought her daughter picked up her Vicodin prescription without her permission from CVS Pharmacy, 133 East Dunlap St., the report said.
She was told when she went to the store Sept. 25 that someone else had picked up the prescription, according to the report. An employee reviewed the security footage and offered a description of the person, which the woman said matched her daughter, the report said.
The woman said that she noticed Vicodin pills missing from her prescription bottle and her daughter has a drug habit, for which she had treatment, the report said. The woman's daughter had a misdemeanor warrant for her failure to appear for a possession of marijuana charge, according to the report. The officer reviewed the footage and confirmed that it showed her paying for a prescription in cash, the report said. The woman said she wanted her daughter arrested, according to the report.
The officer met the woman's daughter at her
workplace in Novi. She told the officer that she has a prescription drug habit and she stopped using heroin in the summer but started taking Vicodin, the report said. She said she put her mother's pills in the
torn lining of her purse and then threw the pill bottle away, according to the report. She was remorseful and wants to get rid of her
drug problem, the report said.
The officer arrested her for her misdemeanor warrant. The 67 pills she took will be analyzed by the Michigan State Police lab, and the officer will then submit a warrant for her arrest on the fraudulent procurement of narcotics charge, the report said.
