A pharmacist at Williams Brothers Health Care Pharmacy on Landmark Avenue called police Feb. 14 after receiving a suspicious prescription from 33-year-old Ben Baker, and 33-year-old Natasha Baker.

The Pharmacist told police The prescription was for methadone, which the doctor who supposedly wrote the prescription does not prescribe.

Natasha Baker was charged with prescription fraud.
