Woman Accuses Friend of Stealing Lortabs
The suspect reportedly said he would return the drugs when the woman paid her to debt to him.
A favor turned into theft when a so-called friend refused to hand over the drugs he had picked up for a woman from a Dacula doctor’s office.
The woman said she asked her friend to stop by Covenant Family Medicine on Teron Trace to pick up her referral to a pain clinic. The woman said she called the office to let them know the man would be stopping by to pick up the referral.
The man reportedly called the woman later and said he had the referral and her prescription refills. The woman, who had only expected her friend to pick up the referral, told police the man said he was keeping her prescriptions, a 30-count bottle of Lortabs and a 40-count bottle of Soma, until she paid him money she owed.
The woman provided Gwinnett County Police with the man’s name and the name of the extended stay hotel where he resides.
The officer called Covenant Family Medicine and spoke with the dispensary manager. According to the police report, the manager said the man signed his name and seemed to be well informed regarding what medications the woman had been taking.
The case is listed as active.
