CLAYTON • A receptionist at a Clayton dental office has been accused of stealing more than $8,000 from her employer and getting painkillers using a phony prescription, authorities say.
Nicole A. Miller, 36, of St. Charles, was charged Friday with felony stealing and fraudulently attempting to obtain a controlled substance. Bail was set at $15,000.
Clayton police say Miller worked as a receptionist at Viva Smiles, a dental office in Clayton. According to court records, her employers discovered that she had stolen more than $8,000 from the business by using the office’s credit card machine to make fraudulent refund payments onto her personal debit cards.
Miller’s job responsibilities included calling in prescriptions for patients, and she knew the doctor’s DEA number, police say. A DEA number allows doctors to write prescriptions for controlled substances.
