PASO ROBLES, Calif. – Paso Robles police arrested two people involved in counterfeiting pharmacy prescriptions on Monday morning in Paso Robles. 

The Paso Robles Police Department responded to a Rite Aid Pharmacy on the 1100 block of Creston Road regarding fraudulent prescriptions. 

The pharmacist reported a suspicious trend from a patient named Robert McDaniel who had picked up several prescriptions of painkillers over the past two months. 

The prescriptions were made out to different names but all stemmed from one dentist office. 

The pharmacist called the prescribing dentist office but each time the receptionist gave an excuse why the dentist could not speak on the phone. 

The pharmacist then refused to fill any more prescriptions until she spoke directly with the dentist. 

Officers responded to the dentist office where they contacted an employee Anacristina McDaniel,29, of Shandon and her husband Robert McDaniel, 31, of Shandon.

Custodian charged with stealing drugs from Mankato MN dental office

MANKATO — A custodian allegedly stole fentanyl and propofol from a Mankato oral surgery office.

Kari Anne Edwards, 53, of Mankato, was charged Thursday with two counts of felony drug possession and two counts of felony theft.

 A employee of an undisclosed oral surgery practice contacted authorities last month and reported that a bottle of fentanyl was discovered missing in February and another bottle of fetanyl and a bottle of propofol were discovered missing in March. The missing pain medication and sedative was valued at over $1,500, according to the criminal complaint.

The drugs reportedly were in a locked cabinet but a key to the cabinet was in an unlocked desk drawer. The complainant suspected Edwards, who had recently started providing cleaning services for the business.

 When Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force agents questioned Edwards, she allegedly admitted to taking the drugs and returned two of the bottles. She said she discarded a bottle of fentanyl after she drank some and it made her sick, according to the complaint.
