The Central West Virginia Drug Task Force arrested Cary Lynn Eades, 46, this week and charged her with obtaining prescription medication by false pretenses.

The criminal complaint said Eades told investigators she called pharmacies in Nicholas and Fayette counties between May 2014 and Feb. 2015 using a fake name “acting as if she was calling from doctor’s offices in the area.” She then would have the pharmacy fill a prescription in her name.

Investigators said Eades obtained 27 separate prescriptions for the pain-killer Tramadol from pharmacies in Summersville between May 21, 2014 and Feb. 20, 2015. She also allegedly obtained 11 separate prescriptions for the same drug from the CVS Pharmacy in Gauley Bridge.

The criminal complaint said Eades told investigators she knew what she was doing was wrong and illegal.

The task force began the investigation after being notified by the Summersville Regional Medical Center.

Eades is being held in the Central Regional Jail on $144,500 bail.
