Two jailed for allegedly filling phony prescriptions on dental patients

Katrina Dixon, 35, and Ashley Coffey, 25, are both behind bars after police say they were forging prescriptions on dental patients without their knowledge. Both suspects worked at a dentist's office in Laurel County. Police did not release the name of the dental office.

Dixon is charged with 10 counts of unauthorized procurement of a controlled substance for filling prescriptions unlawfully for hydrocodone pills on 10 separate occasions. Coffey is facing eight counts of the same charge. Police are still investigating and say they are not sure what the two were doing with the pills once the prescriptions were filled.
