The detainee is accused of presenting false medical prescriptions for benzodiacepine on no less than 83 occasions and committing four robberies. Investigating sources said that between September 2011 and March 2012, the alleged thief had stolen four medical rubber stamps used to certify prescriptions.
Using the stamps, and blank prescriptions which she had stolen from third parties, the accused had fraudulently secured the medicines from various pharmacists in Palma, claiming she needed benzodiacepine for a variety of conditions.
The same sources confirmed that the 83 false prescriptions were presented during the same period, from September 2011 to March 2012.
Alerted to possible fraud, the National Police special investigation team launched operation Tartaro and had collected evidence against the accused over a period of months.
