A Pompano Beach woman is facing nearly 40 charges for selling fake prescriptions at a health care facility where she worked, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
Latoya Shameka Robinson, 38, is accused of writing prescriptions for between 90 and 120 doses each of Xanax, Percocet, Oxycodone and other pills, investigators said.
Robinson was supplied the names of people seeking the medication and wrote them prescriptions for $100 each, according to the arrest report.
The fraud occurred between November 2017 and July 2018 when Robinson worked at the Broward Community and Family Health center at 168 N. Powerline Rd., in Pompano Beach, court records showed.
“This does not appear to be an isolated incident,” said assistant Broward state attorney Eric Linder at Robinson’s first court appearance Friday.
“She wrote at least 140 prescriptions during the time period to numerous people, many who were not even patients of the facility she worked at,” he said.
Robinson confessed when confronted by investigators, they said, saying she did it because she was having financial problems.
She admitted to writing the fraudulent prescriptions without the permission of a doctor or the health care facility, investigators said.
Robinson was booked into the Broward County Jail Friday on 39 charges of selling prescriptions. Bond was set at $19,500, records show.
