Woman accused of OxyContin fraud

An additional '1' on an OxyContin prescription didn't earn a Deer Park woman the pill haul police say she wanted.

An employee at Medicine Shop Pharmacy in Deer Park called police Friday after Bowman attempted to fill a prescription for 160 Oxycontin pills.

The prescribing doctor had told employee that the prescription was for just 60 of the powerful pain pills.

The employee “noted the “one” in 160 was in a slightly different color of ink” and called police, according to  the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Deputy Dan Dutton arrested the suspect, Shannon B. Bowman, 33, on a felony charge of prescription fraud.
