State Police in Lykens have filed charges against three people relating to a prescription drug abuse case.

Police say 21-year-old Christina Wiatrowski of Wiconisco had been forging prescriptions over an extended period of time while working as a pharmacy technician at the Walmart in Washington Township.

She and her husband, 29-year-old Robert Wiatrowski had been abusing the drugs and Robert was also selling them on the street. The couple also had prescriptions created under the names of individuals they knew had insurance so they could get the prescriptions for cheaper.

In one instance, police say that another man, 29-year-old Robert Snyder of Gratz, told Robert Wiatrowski to go to his wife Christina to get him a prescription of narcotics, which the two men split.

All three individuals turned themselves in and were arraigned. Each person is facing several charges including multiple felony offenses of the Controlled Substance Act and Pennsylvania Pharmaceuticals Act in addition to charges of criminal conspiracy and forgery among others.Pharmacy technician and others charged in prescription drug case
