CARTHAGE — A Richmond County woman is facing prescription drug charges in Moore County, after deputies there say she was getting pills by withholding information from health care providers.
Moore County Sheriff Neil Godfrey on Monday announced the arrest of 58-year-old Windlane Patterson Evans, of Cherokee Street in Rockingham on multiple felony drug charges.
An investigation revealed that Evans obtained 25 prescriptions for oxycodone and hydomorphone from four health care providers between Sept. 3, 2015 and May 9 of this year, according to to a release from the sheriff’s office.
Deputies say the prescriptions totaled 2,340 dosage units of oxycodone and 600 dosage units of hyrdromorphone and she did not let any of the health care providers know about the additional prescriptions.
Both drugs are opioids and listed as Schedule II controlled substances in North Carolina.
Evans was charged with obtaining a controlled substance by misrepresentation and withholding information from a health care provider, three counts of felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance and two counts of trafficking opiates by possession.
She was taken to the Moore County Detention Center and given a $15,000 unsecured bond. Her court date is scheduled for July 26.
Online records show Evans has no other pending charges or criminal convictions in North Carolina.
