Woman Jailed For Allegedly Attempting To Get Medicine With Fake Prescription

Cindy Lynn Dunn

Sulphur Springs Police arrested a 58-year-old Big Sandy woman who allegedly tried to obtain controlled substances using a fake prescription.

Cindy Lynn Dunn, who is reported to be employed as a Project Restore organization counselor, was arrested Tuesday for fraudulent use or possession of a Schedule III prescription, according to arrest reports.

Sulphur Springs Police Sgt. Josh Shufeldt was dispatched at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at a South Broadway Street pharmacy to the pharmacy to a complaint of a person trying to pick up a fake prescription.

Shufeldt reported contacting the pharmacist and was told the woman had dropped off two prescriptions for a controlled substance that had been photocopied. The pharmacist reported he had contacted the doctor and was told it was not a valid prescription. In fact, the alleged prescriptions didn’t belong to the woman either, the officer noted in arrest reports. Consequently, Dunn was arrested on the charge. She was released from the county jail Wednesday. Her bond was set at $10,000 on the charge, according to jail reports.
