State Police seek suspect in fraudulent oxycodone prescription

State Police released this security image of a woman trying to fill an allegedly fraudulent prescription for oxycodone Jan. 19 at an Upper Township CVS.

State Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a woman suspected of trying to obtain oxycodone with a fraudulent prescription Jan. 19 at a CVS in Upper Township.

Police said the woman may have used the suspected alias Jennifer Galloway, and she allegedly had a fraudulent prescription to obtain 120 pills of the narcotic pain killer.

A store employee did not fill the prescription, because of suspicions about the prescription, State Police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Michael Pantaleon, of the Woodbine Station, at 609-861-5698. Anonymous tips are welcome.
