Dalton Police investigating prescription fraud case

DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – Dalton Police are investigating a prescription fraud case.

But the next day, another Kroger pharmacist from Warner Robins called the Dalton location to check on an identical prescription.

They determined it was a fraud and called police.

Then a day later, the Dalton pharmacy got an identical prescription request, but from a different patient and a different doctor in Montana.

They have surviellence video of the man who picked up the first prescription.

If you recognize him, please contact Detective Charles Williams at 706-278-9085, extension 9-280.
