ELYRIA — A Lorain man has been charged in connection with an alleged drug ring to illegally acquire prescription drugs by using prescription pads stolen from a dentist.
Vincent Inchaurregui, 28, was indicted on one count of illegal processing of drug documents, according to a secret indictment unsealed Monday.
Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will said Inchaurregui’s indictment is connected with the indictments of two women last month on similar charges.
Bridget Dorsey, 31, of Lorain, and Camilla Sandanger, 28, of Elyria, each were indicted on counts of deception to obtain a dangerous drug and illegally processing of drug documents in early April. Sandanger faces 26 counts, while Dorsey was indicted on 16 counts, according to court records.
Will has said that the group was taking script pads from a dentist and issuing prescriptions to people for controlled substances and “they would send people in to cash these at pharmacies.”
A pharmacist at one of the pharmacies noticed that prescription was not signed by a doctor, which is required by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Will has said. The pharmacy refused to fill the prescription and then contacted law enforcement.
Law enforcement, through backtracking, located numerous prescriptions that were passed by the group of individuals, Will has said.
One of the women used to work for a dentist, and it’s believed that she stole the prescription pads at that time, Will has said.
