Woman charged with prescription fraud

MANATEE — A woman remained in jail on a $40,000 bond after she passed four fake prescriptions at Bradenton Home Town Pharmacy, 1407 57th Ave. W., over the past year for Xanax and Roxicodoone, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office arrest warrant affidavit.

Pharmacists contacted detectives after they researched several prescriptions and made contact with the listed doctor who said 23-year-old Nicole Doborwicz was not a patient.

Doborwicz presented her driver’s license each time she passed a prescription to the pharmacists.

Deborwicz’s arrest is part of an effort by local law enforcement to crack down on prescription drug crime and abuse. She is one of a several hundred people who have been arrested on prescription drug-related charges this year.
