UPDATE (9:48 a.m.)—Police arrested two Baltimore City women on Tuesday night outside the Perry Hall Walgreens after they allegedly purchased drugs using forged prescriptions.
Anitra Adams, 37, of the 1200 block of Damsel Road and Tanea Sorrell, 36, of the 4300 block of Lasalle Avenue were each charged with four counts of fraud and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, according to Baltimore County police spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.
On the evening of May 22, two women submitted prescriptions for oxycodone and Flexeril, a painkiller and muscle relaxer, to the Walgreens pharmacy at 9621 Belair Rd., police said. Pharmacy technicians contacted police because the prescriptions appeared fraudulent. Detectives then contacted the doctors listed on the prescriptions to determine if they were fraudulent, according to Rogers-Feher.
At around 8 p.m., police arrested Adams and Sorrell, who had returned to Walgreens, but not yet picked up the prescriptions. The women told police they were promised payment for delivering the drugs to "another party," Rogers-Feher said.
The suspects were each held on $10,000 bail and released from jail on Wednesday, court records show.
Editor's Note: A previous version of this article stated that the suspects had prescription drugs on them when they were arrested. Police later explained that the women did not. Patch regrets the error.
